    Senior safety officials in the United States have faced questions on aviation safety for the first time since two American-made Boeing aircraft crashed within months of each other.

    The executives from federal regulators have been giving evidence to a Senate sub-committee in Washington, DC.

    The US transport secretary has defended the decision that made the US the last country to ground the aircraft after the crashes.

    Al Jazeera's Alan Fisher reports from Washington, DC.
