    Kuwait Seizes Iraq Airline Assets In Jordan:confused:

    Kuwait has seized assets of Iraq's national airline in Jordan, Iraqi officials said on Saturday, the latest step in a row between the states over war reparations.

    Iraqi Airways has filed an appeal against the decision in Jordan, said Karim al-Nuri, a media adviser to the Iraqi Transport Ministry.

    He said Kuwaiti authorities seized the Iraqi Airways office in the Jordanian capital after obtaining a ruling from a court there.

    "Two days ago, the Iraqi Airways' office in Amman has been seized (by Kuwait) and USD$1.5 million of its assets have been frozen," Nuri said.
