Emergency Landing for Basketball Team En Route to J'lem


A plane carrying a basketball team from the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod on its way to Jerusalem for a Euroleague quarterfinal match against Hapoel Jerusalem on Wednesday was forced to make an emergency landing in Berlin, Monday, after four birds flew into one of its wings.

The team is scheduled to take an El Al flight from Germany to Tel Aviv before busing to the capital.
