UN agency moves to kill aircraft battery exemption

Federal officials grounded 787's from flying on Jan. 16 after two battery incidents in less than two weeks, including a fire. The order barred Boeing test flights, too. Boeing won permission for test flights last week, and the first one was conducted on Saturday. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
