More flights suspended to Ebola-hit areas

The three nations at the center of the West African Ebola outbreak were left increasingly isolated on Thursday as more airlines suspended flights to the crisis zone.

Air France has agreed to Paris' request for a "temporary suspension" of services to Sierra Leone, leaving its capital, Freetown, and Monrovia in neighboring Liberia with just one regular service - from Royal Air Morocco.

"In light of the analysis of the situation and as requested by the French government, Air France confirms it is maintaining its program of flights to and from Guinea and Nigeria," the flag carrier said on Wednesday.
