Baku, May 9, AZERTAC
Italy has cancelled dozens of flights to and from its busiest airport - Fiumicino in Rome - after a fire gutted part of its international terminal.
The airport was closed for several hours but officials are working to get it fully operational again.
The overnight blaze - now extinguished - gutted a shopping area at terminal three. Nobody died, but a few people were treated for smoke inhalation.
Thousands of passengers were hit by delays and many flights were diverted.
The fire broke out at about midnight (22:00 GMT) on Wednesday and took some five hours to bring under control.
TV pictures showed the terminal engulfed in flames overnight, then the burnt-out facade in the morning. Thick smoke was seen rising from the building until mid-morning.
Possible causes of the fire are being investigated, though a short circuit is thought to be the most likely. Foul play has been ruled out.
