ALMATY (Reuters) - Kazakhstan’s civil aviation committee suspended Boeing 737 Max flights starting from Wednesday, it said in a statement, following two fatal crashes involving the aircraft in Indonesia and Ethiopia.

The committee said only one such jet was registered in the Central Asian nation, belonging to privately-owned Scat airline.
