PARIS (Reuters) - Europe's main aviation safety regulator said on Wednesday it had recommended that airlines avoid Iraqi airspace, in the wake of Iranian missile attacks against U.S.-led forces in the country.

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) said it had shared the recommendation with national authorities "as a precautionary measure" while carrying out a fuller assessment of the situation in the region.
