Turbulence injures 35 on Air Canada flight to Sydney

At least 35 people suffered minor injuries after an Air Canada flight hit a severe patch of turbulence.

The plane - which had 284 people on board - was travelling from Vancouver to Sydney on Thursday but had to be diverted to Hawaii.

Medical staff examined the injured after it landed at Honolulu's airport at 06:46 local time (16:46 GMT).

The Boeing 777-200 jet "encountered sudden clear air turbulence... two hours past Hawaii", the airline said.

It added that it was arranging hotels in Honolulu until a new flight to Australia could be arranged.
