KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, April 20 (UPI) -- Malaysia Airlines suffered another setback on Monday when a Boeing 737 carrying 159 passangers to India was forced to turn back to Kuala Lumpur.

Airline officials said Flight MH192, headed for Bangalore made a U-turn when one of its tires burst shortly after take off.

The airline said the plane made a successful emergency landing and all passengers and crew were safely evacuated.

"Alhamdulillah," Malaysia Airlines tweeted afterward, meaning "praise God."



Meanwhile, the search is still on for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, which disappeared more than a month ago. An underwater drone is still searching a large area off of the coast of Perth, Australia.
