WASHINGTON (AFP) -- Delta Airlines said Monday a worldwide grounding of its flights has been lifted and its planes will resume taking off on a limited basis.

The airline said cancellations and delays will continue because of the more than three hour halt caused by a computer breakdown. It blamed the problem on a power outage at its hub in Atlanta.
