PARIS, Sept 16 (AFP) - The French civil aviation authority DGAC on Friday banned flights by Cameroon Airlines for an indefinite period, citing safety concerns.

"The suspension follows tests carried out in the spring on company aircraft which revealed several failures to meet international norms notably in the fields of loading, transport of dangerous materials, navigation documentation and tyre maintenance," the DGAC said.

The French and Cameroonian authorities agreed on a plan of action to correct the problems, but "new tests carried out in July and August showed that persistent anomalies remained in place."
