Pilots of the plane that crashed at San Francisco airport on Saturday tried to abort the landing seconds before touching down, US investigators say.

Initial inquiries suggested the Asiana plane was flying "significantly below" its target speed on approach.

And the Korean airline revealed that the pilot was landing a Boeing 777 at San Francisco for the first time.

Two Chinese teenagers died and more than 180 people were injured when the plane hit the seawall.
