Tuesday, July 23, 2013 - 7:00pm

 A Southwest Airlines jetliner experienced a nose gear problem while landing at New York's LaGuardia airport on Monday.

The Federal Aviation Administration said there were no reported injuries.

The 737's emergency slides were deployed and fire department vehicles surrounded it on the tarmac.

It was not immediately clear if Flight 345 landed without its nose gear fully extended or if it collapsed during or just after landing.

The busy airport has halted all arrivals.
