Eurocontrol: Libya shuts airspace to all traffic

BRUSSELS - Libya closed its air space to all traffic on Friday, according to European air traffic control organization Eurocontrol, a move that may anticipate the UN's imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya.
Eurocontrol said it had received information from Malta that Tripoli air traffic control had put out a notice saying it was not accepting any aircraft into Libyan airspace "until further notice".
"That is the only information we have at this time," said a spokeswoman for Eurocontrol. "It is information passed onto us from Maltese authorities."
