Damaged 737 plane lands safely at Ben Gurion after tire scare

The damaged Boeing 737 plane lands safely at Ben Gurion Airport after officials had earlier declared the highest level of emergency over fears a blown tire could lead to a problematic landing.

The plane brakes with its engines in full reverse to avoid pressure on tires, officials say.

The Electra Air flight carries 152 people from Cologne, Germany, to Tel Aviv.
