SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — South Korea says two veteran pilots were flying the Asiana Airlines jetliner when it crashed while landing at San Francisco's airport, killing two people.
The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport says four pilots were aboard and rotated in two-person shifts during the flight from Asia.
Officials say more than 300 passengers and crew members were aboard when it slammed into the runway and caught fire. The two dead were found outside the wreckage. Another 182 people were taken to hospitals, many with minor injuries.
San Francisco's fire chief says authorities have accounted for all passengers and crew members who were aboard the jetliner.
The flight originated in Shanghai, China with a stopover in Seoul.
National Transportation Safety Board investigators are on the scene.
POTISKUM, Nigeria (AP) — Islamic extremists have killed 29 students and one teacher in an attack on a boarding school in northeast Nigeria.
Survivors being treated for burn and gunshots wounds say some students were burned alive in the attack before dawn Saturday on Government Secondary School in Mamudo town in Yobe state.
As he wept over the bodies of his two boys, farmer Malam Abdullahi swore he would withdraw three remaining sons from a nearby school.
He complained there was no protection for students despite the deployment of thousands of troops since the government declared a state of emergency mid-May in three northeastern states.
Dozens of schools have been torched and unknown scores of students killed among more than 1,600 victims slain by extremists since 2010.
CAIRO (AP) — Officials say Egypt's interim president has held talks with the army chief and interior minister following overnight clashes across the country that killed at least 30 people.
Adly Mansour met with army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who is also the defense minister, as well as Interior Minister Mohammed Ibrahim, who is in charge of the police, at the presidential palace today.
It was the first time Mansour has worked out of the president's main offices since he was sworn-in Thursday as the country's interim leader. Mansour took over a day after the military overthrew Mohammed Morsi, who was the country's first democratically elected president.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief the media.
Cairo's emblematic Tahrir Square and nearby approaches to the River Nile are largely empty and debris-strewn today and Egypt remains on edge.
