Singapore will temporarily suspend all Boeing 737 MAX flights from 1400 local time (0600 GMT on Tuesday, the civil aviation authority said, two days after an Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed all 157 on board.

The suspension will affect SilkAir, an arm of Singapore Airlines, as well as China Southern Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, Shandong Airlines and Thai Lion Air, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore said in a statement.
