Brazil in the news: plane crashes at SP airport

Less than a year after the biggest aviation disaster in Brazilian history killed 153 passengers in the Amazon region, another plane has crashed, this time in a crowded downtown area in the city of São Paulo. The airbus skidded off the runway right after landing at Congonhas airport and hit a building, immediately bursting into flames and killing all 186 passengers and crew members on board, and critically injuring a number of people on the road. If you have been following the story, here's the news on CNN and an updated article by the Associated Press (with video).
