Airline officials say a Japanese passenger plane damaged part of its wing on landing at Osaka International Airport. No one was injured but the runway was closed for about an hour to clean up debris.

Japan Airlines spokeswoman Mari Yanagawa says 168 passengers and crew were aboard Wednesday's flight from northern Niigata to the airport in western Japan.

She says the MD81 aircraft tilted during landing, and the landing light and slats were damaged as the left wing rubbed against the ground.

Yanagawa says the cause of the incident is under investigation.
