Hollande's plane hit by lightning, reports say


A plane carrying Francois Hollande was forced to turn back to Paris, after apparently being struck by lightning en route to Berlin.

French officials say no one was hurt, but that the plane returned to Paris as a precaution.

The newly-inaugurated French President boarded a second flight, in order to attend a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
