Tunisia has banned Emirates airline from landing in the capital Tunis after a number of Tunisian women were prevented from boarding its flights.

The move comes amid widespread anger in Tunisia, with rights groups condemning "racist and discriminatory" measures.

The transport ministry said the measure would stay in place until Emirates was able to "operate flights in accordance with law and international agreements".

The UAE said "security information" had caused the delays.
