  intelligence officials that it was perhaps being used for terrorist activities, Fox News reported on its Web site

"I am sorry, but we are no longer flying to Tehran and I do not know when the flights will resume.

The news agency said the message was in response to efforts it made to buy round-trip tickets on the regularly scheduled flight between Caracas, Damascus and Tehran. The flight generally departs every other Tuesday.

Despite being listed as a regular commercial route, intelligence analysts with both the CIA and the nation of Israel said it was impossible to buy a ticket and travel without getting approval from the Venezuelan or Iranian government, Fox News said.
