Swedish Radio News reports that direct air flights from Sweden to northern Iraq are about to resume following a three month break.

Traffic was suspended in August, after the pilots on a Swedish airliner reported being shot at with a rocket over northwestern Iraq. The attack has never been confirmed, and now the civilian aviation authorities say they believe if there was a rocket fired it was an isolated incident.

Two airlines have applied for permission to resume flights to Iraqi Kurdistan. Some 70,000 Swedes have their roots in the area.
