(Reuters) - A cargo plane crashed on a busy highway in Dubai on Friday, setting some cars on fire, Al Arabiya television reported.
Ambulances were rushing to the area, located near a residential district, the station added. It did not report the model of aircraft or its size. Officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
ABC Mysteriously Pulls Story on Dubia Hijacking - Salon.com
ABC on Tuesday published on its website what seemed to be a major exclusive story by Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross: Law enforcement officials, according to Ross, had been "on a heightened state of alert to a possible hijacking of U.S. carrier flights from the Middle East" -- and as a result the number of air marshals on overseas flights, particularly to Dubai, had in the last few weeks been "greatly ramped up."
But then, just like that, it was gone.
The piece, which ran under the headline "Authorities Were on High Alert for Possible Hijack Attempt" and was sourced to "one senior U.S. official," is simply no longer available on ABC's site. (It has been at least partially preserved on a few outside aggregrator sites.) But even though the story was taken down, ABC told Salon that it stands by the story.
