    <H2>US sanctions ground China's Great Wall</H2> <P><STRONG>Suspension </STRONG>Singapore Airlines' (SIA) joint-venture cargo carrier in China has been forced to suspend all operations after its Chinese parent company had sanctions imposed on it by the US Treasury Department for allegedly supplying missile technology to Iran. Great Wall Airlines, which only launched operations at the end of May, suspended all services on 18 August. SIA says the suspension was necessary as the US government's sanctions against Great Wall's 51% owner, China Great Wall Industry, mean Boeing and its Jeppesen unit are "not allowed to provide support or have business dealings" with the company or its subsidiaries. China Great Wall Industry is a state-controlled company that has been involved in commercial satellite launches and other aerospace-related businesses.

All but five of the 80 passengers and crew on board were killed. </p> <p>The captain opted to descend below the minimum descent height of 2,800ft (855m) as the jet began the non-precision approach to Diyarbakir's runway 34 at the end of a scheduled flight from Istanbul.</p> <p>The airport did not have an instrument landing system (ILS). Runway 34 has a threshold elevation of 2,160ft and the minimum descent height should, according to the approach procedure, be reached 2.8km (1.5nm) from the runway. Non-precision approaches are made with VOR and NDB beacons, as well as DME navigation aids.</p> <p>In its report into the 8 January 2003 accident, the Turkish civil aviation administration says visibility was around 1km, owing to fog.
