While the UAE said that "security information" had caused the original delays, and that the temporary ban had already been lifted, Tunisia's transport ministry said that the landing-ban would stay in place until the UAE was able to "operate flights in accordance with law and worldwide agreements".

There is a public outcry in Tunisia after several women reported that they had been barred from boarding Emirates flights to Dubai.

On Sunday evening he said "security information" had caused the delays to the passengers' flights and that both countries were in contact about the measures.

The Tunisian transport ministry issued a statement saying Emirates flights would be suspended "until the company finds an appropriate solution to operate its flights that follows worldwide laws and treaties".

He also said that the UAE "appreciates and respects Tunisian women", adding that "we should avoid attempts at interpretation and errors".

Kentucky Public Health officials reporting 'widespread' flu
Earlier this month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention declared that influenza is now widespread in CT . During the week of December 3, Mountain States and Wellmont hospitals recorded 54 positive flu cases.

But Tunisian official Garrach insisted that while his country could understand the UAE's concerns, it cannot "accept the way Tunisian women have been treated".

The UAE's Minister of State For Foreign Affairs, Anwar Gargash, said on Twitter that both countries had been in discussion about the "security measure information".

The travel ban has sparked a wave of fierce criticism in Tunisia.

Tunisia has been trying to fix diplomatic ties with the UAE damaged by its 2011 revolution and after the Islamic party Al-Nahda, which has strong links with Qatar, came to power in the North African country.

The party called on the Tunisian government to take strict measures to deter such unfair and humiliating decisions against the Tunisian people.
