The World

Dozens of police investigators searched two Tokyo offices of Japan Air Lines for evidence of criminal negligence in the 1985 crash of a jumbo jet that killed 520 people in the worst single-plane accident in history. Investigators, in the first such search since the crash northwest of Tokyo, sought evidence that might support criminal charges against the airline and its personnel. The probe came two months after a government-appointed panel blamed the accident on faulty repairs by the aircraft's U.S. manufacturer, the Boeing Co., and JAL's failure to find them.
