A plane skidded off a runway upon landing in southern India on Friday and split into two pieces, killing 18 people and injuring 123 others. Monsoon-like conditions contributed to the crash, and forecasters predicted more heavy rain for the region. The coronavirus pandemic has grounded regular commercial flights in the country, but this one was repatriating Indian citizens who were stranded outside the country during the pandemic, authorities said.
