      Jet makes emergency landing in Greenville

      GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - Officials say a US Airways plane bound for Charlotte, N.C., diverted to Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport after a report of smoke in the lavatory.

      Airport spokeswoman Rosylin Weston says the plane landed at Greenville-Spartanburg on Friday afternoon.

      A US Airways spokesman says the plane was flying from Montgomery, Ala., to Charlotte when a flight attendant told the captain a light in the lavatory had given off a "slight smoky scent."

      Weston says the plane landed safely, and no smoke was found. There were no injuries reported.
