SAN FRANCISCO, California (Reuters) -- California officials quarantined an airplane on Tuesday carrying four passengers who reported symptoms of the pneumonia-like virus spreading in Asia that has killed 63 people, a spokeswoman said.

The plane, American Airlines Flight 128 from Tokyo, remained on the tarmac of the San Jose International Airport nearly an hour after landing because two crew and two passengers reported feeling symptoms of the SARS illness, airport spokeswoman Cathy Gaskell said.

A total of 200 people were on board. Health officials are trying to determine what to do next, she said.
