    A flight from Washington, D.C. bound for Germany made an emergency landing at Newark Liberty International Airport Friday night after there were reports of a smell of smoke in the cabin, an airline spokesman said.

    United flight 932 to Frankfurt, which departed Dulles International Airport at 9:55 p.m., landed at Newark at 11:30 p.m. following reports of a smell of smoke, according to a United spokesman.

    The plane, a Boeing 777, landed safely and taxied normally at Newark, the spokesman said.

    Some passengers were treated for smoke inhalation, according to a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, but no one was seriously injured. 

    The passengers, who were put up in hotel rooms for the night, were expected to resume their flight Saturday.
