TUNIS (Reuters) – The United Arab Emirates has information that Tunisian women or women travelling on Tunisian passports might commit “terrorist acts” in the Gulf country, Tunisia’s state news agency said.

Tunisia late on Sunday suspended flights from Dubai carrier Emirates to Tunis, with officials saying the airline was refusing to carry female Tunisian travellers.

Emirates has given no reason for not allowing female Tunisians to board its flights since Friday.
