A Boeing 787 Dreamliner
operated by Ethiopian Airlines
caught fire at Britain s
Heathrow airport yesterday in
a fresh blow for the US plane-
maker which earlier this year
was forced to ground the new
planes for three months after
Boeing shares tumbled by as
much as seven per cent, wiping
$5.4 billion off its market cap-
italisation after television footage
showed the Dreamliner sur-
rounded by foam used by fire-
fighters at Heathrow. At 17.45
GMT, shares were down 3.2 per
cent at US$103.50.
Heathrow briefly closed both
its runways to deal with the fire
which broke out while the air-
craft was parked at a remote
stand. There were no passengers
aboard the plane.
Television footage showed an
area on the fuselage in front of
the tail that appeared to be
It was not clear if the fire was
related to the batteries, which
were the cause of the previous
fires on the Dreamliner.
"A Boeing 787 Dreamliner suf-
fered an on board internal fire,"
a Heathrow spokeswoman said.
"The plane is now parked at a
remote parking stand several
hundred metres away from any
Boeing said it was aware of
the fire and that had people on
the ground working to under-
stand the causes of it. The US
Federal Aviation Administration
said it was aware of the fire and
was in contact with Boeing.
"This is terrible for the
Dreamliner, any event involving
fire and that airplane is going
to be a PR disaster for Boeing,"
Christine Negroni, an aviation
writer and safety specialist based
in New York, said in a telephone
"Because of the battery issue,
the public is even more sensitive
to events that happen to the
"Even if they are normal,
benign teething problems, that
subtlety is going to be lost on
the public," she said.
Another Boeing Dreamliner
operated by Thomson Airways
returned to the United Kingdom
due to technical issues as a pre-
caution, TUI Travel said.
Ethiopian Airlines said its air-
craft had been parked at
Heathrow for more than eight
hours before smoke was detect-
At least six people died and a dozen
were seriously injured when a train
derailed and hit the platform at a sta-
tion in central France yesterday, leav-
ing several carriages torn and one
lying on its side, officials said.
Local prefect Michel Fuzeau said nine
of the 12 people injured were very seri-
ously wounded, and Interior Minister
Manuel Valls said the death toll would
The train---a regional service that
travels more slowly than France s TGV
express trains---veered off the track en
route from Paris to the city of Limoges
at the station of Bretigny-sur-Oise, 26
km (16 miles) south of Paris.
"The death toll is evolving constantly
at this point and unfortunately it will
probably rise," Valls said.
National rail operator SNCF said the
train, travelling just as many French
families were heading off on summer
holidays, was carrying around 385 peo-
ple and that an investigation was under
way into what had happened.
"We do not know the cause of the
derailment yet," SNCF Chairman Guil-
laume Pepy told reporters at the scene.
The train was not scheduled to stop at
Bretigny-sur-Oise but passengers told
local media the train nonetheless
appeared to be travelling unusually fast
as it approached the station.
Television images showed one of the
carriages smashed against a platform
at Bretigny-sur-Orge station, 26 km
(16 miles) south of Paris. Trapped pas-
sengers were still being helped to safe-
"Most of the people who suffered
minor injuries have been taken care of.
We are going to have to empty the car-
riages completely to see if there are
victims or not," said local lawmaker
Michel Pouzol. (AP)
The family of a woman who may
have been the Boston Strangler s last
victim could be just days away from
getting answers about her slaying
after decades of wondering whether
police pinned it on the right man.
Workers at a Massachusetts ceme-
tery yesterday began digging up the
remains of Albert DeSalvo, the sus-
pect in the death of Mary Sullivan.
His casket was expected to be
exhumed and taken to the medical
examiner, where tissue or bone sam-
ples will be taken, a spokesman for
the Suffolk District Attorney s office
Authorities said Thursday that for
the first time they have forensic evi-
dence tying DeSalvo to Sullivan s
death. DeSalvo was the man who first
confessed to being the Boston Stran-
gler, but later recanted before his
stabbing death in prison as he served
a life sentence for other crimes.
Nineteen-year-old Mary Sullivan,
whom Sherman called "the joy of her
Irish Catholic family," left the quiet
of Cape Cod for the bustle of life in
Boston in January 1964. A few days
later she was dead.
Someone raped and strangled her
in the apartment she d just moved
into, and her death became linked to
what some believed was the work of
a serial killer who also stole the lives
of ten other women during a homi-
cidal rampage in the Boston area that
lasted two years. (AP)
