New York: Ten injured as plane crash lands at LaGuardia Airport

Ten people were left with minor injuries after a plane's nose wheel collapsed when it landed at New York's LaGuardia airport, officials say.

Six of the casualties were taken to hospital after Southwest Airlines Flight 345 skidded off the runway, said airport general manager Tom Bosco.

Emergency vehicles surrounded the Boeing 737 from Nashville, which had 143 passengers and six crew on board.

The airport was shut temporarily, but later opened.
