Botswana's leader in plane crisis
A plane carrying Botswana's President Festus Mogae, his wife and nine top officials has made an emergency landing in Athens, media reports say.

The action was taken after a crack appeared in a cockpit window.

The private plane, a Gulfstream 4, had taken off from Luxor, Egypt, and was heading for London's Stansted airport.

None of the 11 passengers and six crew on board the Botswana government plane, were injured in the incident, Greek police said.
