"They've caught us completely unaware, it was a very realistic drill," said a Kenyan police source at the airport, one of the security personnel who rushed to the airport in answer to the security alert. Earlier, Kenya's KTN television news reported that 76 people were feared dead after an airliner had crashed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Separately, a Kenyan Airport Authority spokesman told Reuters that nine people had been killed when a Boeing 737 airliner had crashed at about 7 p.m. (noon EDT). An airline official confirmed that a major security drill was under way. WWWhhhheeeeeewwwwww!Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert
