Debris from a Norwegian Air Boeing 787 pelted a village near Rome after a "technical failure," damaging cars and homes as the plane passed over worried residents.

The plane dropped pieces of debris between five and 10 centimeters (two to four inches) in diameter as it passed over the Isla Sacra area outside Rome after taking off at the nearby Fiumicino airport on Saturday, Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera reported.
The plane then turned back to the airport, with Norwegian saying the plane had "indications of a technical failure of one of the engines."
A spokesperson for Norwegian said told Euronews that the plane, which was bound for Los Angeles, turned back to the airport "due to indications of a technical failure of one of the engines." She said the plane landed safely.
Esterino Montino, the mayor of the region that contains Isla Sacra, said in a statement on Saturday that "some metal fragments fell to the ground at high speed" as the plane had a "malfunction" and had to turn back.
He said the fragments "hit and damaged parked cars, roofs and other objects," where local and national police and the fire brigade then went.
He said that incident added to ongoing "safety concerns" about the location of the airport, where "the planes are so close to the houses, there are real risks."
ENAC, Italy's flight safety agency, is investigating the incident, according to Corriere Della
