The Lion Air plane carrying more than 100 passengers and crew overshot a runway on the Indonesian resort island of Bali on Saturday and crashed into the sea, injuring nearly two dozen people, officials said. Up to 45 people were taken to several different hospitals for treatment, said airport spokesman Alfasyah. There were only three foreigners on board — two Singaporeans and a French national. All three suffered slight injuries.
