GEORGETOWN - A Caribbean Airlines jet carrying 163 people crashed and broke in two as it tried to land in Guyana on Saturday, injuring several passengers but killing nobody.

The Boeing 737-800 overshot the runway as it arrived at Georgetown's Cheddi Jagan airport just after midnight from Trinidad.

"We are very, very thankful and grateful that there are no deaths," Guyana's President Bharrat Jagdeo said at the airport.

Flight BW 523 was carrying 157 passengers and six crew, the airline said in a statement.
