CAIRO - Airlines operating at Cairo airport were officially requested on Sunday to prevent US immigration visa holders from seven Muslim-majority countries from boarding flights to the United States, Hossam Hussein, an EgyptAir official, said.

Hussein, who is responsible for EgyptAir's daily flight to New York, said authorities there had notified them hours earlier of the new restrictions.

He said green card holders from Sudan, Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Somalia and Libya would be allowed to board as would holders of diplomatic passports or government officials.
