Spanish officials say an airliner carrying 74 people skidded off a runway on landing in the Canary Islands but no injuries are reported.  Spanish airport authority spokesman Alberto Martin Carvajal says the Air Europa Boeing-737 was arriving from Glasgow and landing on the island of Lanzarote when it left the runway near the end of the landing strip. He says everyone was evacuated from the plane and no-one was hurt in Friday's incident but authorities closed the airport.  The Spanish Interior Ministry office in the Canary Islands said the plane was carrying 74 passengers and crew members.  Carvajal said the aircraft skidded off the runway and ended up perpendicular to it.
