Swedish Police to Madrid after Crash

Following the fatal air crash in Madrid, a team of Swedish police identification experts is flying to Spain to help find a missing Swedish passenger.

One hundred fifty-three people died when a Spanair jet crashed on take-off Wednesday.

One Swedish woman was among the 19 injured survivors, but another who was on the passenger list is still missing. The Swedish experts will also try to ascertain if any other Swedes were on the flight.

Spanair is subsidiary of the Scandinavian Airlines, which has been unsuccessful in its attempts to sell the troubled carrier.
