(CNN) -- Sweden has suspended its commercial flights to and from Iraq following a report that an aircraft traveling to Stockholm was targeted by attackers, a spokesman for the country's Civil Aviation Authority says.
Eva-Mari Lofqvist, the agency's information officer, told CNN that the move was made Friday and will be in effect "until further notice."
Last Wednesday, a Nordic Airways flight carrying around 120 passengers was headed from Sulaimaniya in the northern Iraqi Kurdish region to the Swedish capital, Stockholm, when the incident occurred.
The pilot said he believed a weapon was fired at the craft but couldn't confirm what kind of projectile was used.
Officials are trying to gather more information about the incident and assess the security situation in Iraq.
The pilot reported the incident after the landing of the plane, which was not diverted.
Sweden is home to a large Iraqi refugee population, many of whom hail from the three-province Kurdish region, which is not beset with the raging violence afflicting Baghdad and other parts of the country. E-mail to a friend
