GM restricts travel

General Motors has banned most international travel in the wake of U.S. bombing in Afghanistan.

In a policy issued Sunday, GM prohibits all travel to the Middle East and Southwest Asia, as well as all intercontinental travel. Intracontinental travel is limited to "business critical" trips, a spokesman said.

But GM plans for executive travel to the Tokyo Motor Show remain unchanged, the spokesman said. Executives will travel by company plane, rather than commercial airlines. The media days of the show are Oct. 24 and 25.
