Moroni, Comoros -- A Yemeni jetliner carrying 153 peoples crashed into the Indian Ocean as it came in for a landing during howling winds on the island nation of Comoros. There were conflicting reports about whether a child survived.
The crash came two years after aviation officials report fault with the plane, an Airbus 310 flying the last leg of a journey from Paris and Marseille to Comoros, with a stop in Yemen to change planes. Most of the passengers came from Comoros, a former French colony. 66 on board were French nationals.
