GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- A Continental Express flight from Houston to the Washington area was diverted to North Carolina on Wednesday after a threatening message was written on a bathroom mirror, the Transportation Security Administration said. Flight 3006, operated by regional carrier ExpressJet for Continental Airlines Inc., was headed for Dulles International Airport in Virginia when it was directed to land at Piedmont Triad International Airport near Greensboro "out of an abundance of caution," the TSA said.

LONDON (AP) -- Many European flights took to the skies Tuesday for the first time in days but the travel chaos was far from over: London's airports were still closed, a massive flight backlog was growing and scientists feared that history could repeat itself with yet another volcanic eruption in Iceland. Airports in London will remain closed until at least Wednesday, though British Airways sought permission to land about a dozen flights from the United States, Asia and Africa at Heathrow Airport.

BRUSSELS (AP) -- European officials carved up the sky Monday, creating three zones to more quickly break the flight deadlock caused by volcanic ash flowing from Iceland over Europe. Many more flights will be able to take off on Tuesday, the bloc said. European countries can resume airline traffic in designated "caution zones" where the threat of ash is considered less dangerous, French officials said after a meeting of the bloc's 27 transport ministers. Under the accord, one area -- defined by the European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol -- will remain entirely off limits to flights.

LONDON (AP) -- France's Civil Aviation authority says that Paris' main airport and nearly two dozen others are closing due to volcanic ash. The Civil Aviation authority cites security reasons for the decision. Ash from Iceland's spewing volcano halted air traffic across a wide swath of Europe on Thursday, grounding planes on a scale not seen since the 9/11 terror attacks. Thousands of flights were canceled, tens of thousands of passengers were stranded and officials said it was not clear when it would be safe enough to fly again.
