Latvian PM cancels UK visit over volcanic ash
Latvian Prime Minister Valdis Dombrovskis was forced to cancel a visit to Britain Tuesday as a cloud of volcanic ash snarled air traffic, his spokesman Martins Panke told the Baltic News Service.
Dombrovskis was scheduled to pay a working visit Britain this Wednesday and Thursday.
Airlines halted hundreds of flights on Tuesday after a plume of ash from an erupting volcano in Iceland blew over Britain, even forcing US President Barack Obama to revise his travel plans.
