The New York Times: Regulators around the globe on Thursday ordered the grounding of Boeing 787s until they could determine what caused a new type of battery to fail on two planes in recent days, resulting in an emergency landing Wednesday and a fire last week.

Passengers evacuated a Boeing 787 operated by All Nippon Airways on Wednesday. It made an emergency landing in Japan after smoke arose in the cockpit.

The directives in Europe, India and Japan followed an order Wednesday by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration grounding planes operated by American carriers.

The decisions are a result of incidents involving a 787 that was parked in Boston on Jan. 7 and another in Japan that had to make an emergency landing Wednesday morning after an alarm warning of smoke in the cockpit.

In Japan on Thursday, the Transportation Ministry issued a formal order to ground all 787s until concerns over the aircraft’s battery systems are resolved. All Nippon Airways and Japan Airlines on Wednesday had voluntarily grounded their 787s, leading to more than two dozen canceled flights.
