Passengers injured by turbulence

Seven passengers have been treated for cuts and bruises after a Qantas Airways superjumbo hit severe turbulence en route from London to Singapore.

Qantas spokeswoman Sophia Connolly said Flight QF32 carrying 450 passengers struck turbulence in Indian airspace on Saturday.

She said seven passengers suffered minor cuts and bruises. Four were treated in a Singapore hospital and the others at a medical centre. All have been discharged.

The flight later continued to Sydney, 24 hours behind schedule.
