I'm not believing this. There are no CONFIRMED fatalities, but then again, it would be hard to confirm at the moment, seeing as the main passenger compartment is (or was shortly) on fire.

Planes are certified for numbers of seats that can be evacuated in a set amount of time. Add to that it was at the end of a long flight and not fully laden with fuel etc. so its concieveable that they can all get out. They even have to mix in kids, elderly etc. Kudos to the flight crew (for the evacuation, not the runway overshoot), engineers of the plane, and the passangers themselves.
