A spokeswoman for the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), said
everything possible was being done to fix the leak, which officials
estimated was spewing out between 30,000 and 58,000 kilos of methane
into the air per hour

YOGYAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — An Indonesian jet
fighter taking part in an aerobatic show crashed and burst into flames Sunday,
killing two pilots. No one on the ground was injured.
KAI T-50 Golden Eagle, a U.S.-South
Korean-made light attack aircraft, spun out of control and crashed into an air
force base complex near Adi Sutjipto Airport in Yogyakarta, a tourist
destination city on the main island of Java, according to a witness, Jawardi,
who goes by a single name. He spoke to MetroTV.
The crash occurred on the second day of an air
show celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Air Force Flight School in
Yogyakarta, said Air Vice Marshal Dwi Badarmanto, an air force spokesman.
The pilot and co-pilot — both Indonesians — died
instantly, and an investigation team has been sent to the crash site, he said.
TV showed plumes of black smoke billowing from
the wreckage as the plane burst into flames.
The trainer aircraft is one of 16 similar models
bought by the Indonesian air force last year.
