Delta flight returns to Brazil after radar failure

Delta Airlines says a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Atlanta was turned back because of a malfunction in the plane's weather radar.

The problem in the Boeing 767-300 was detected after the plane took off Sunday night, forcing the pilots to divert the aircraft back to Rio.

Delta said in a statement Monday that the 132 passengers on Flight 60 were being placed on another flight.
