An ANA Holdings Inc. Boeing Co. 787 bound for Tokyo made an emergency return to Kuala Lumpur Monday after receiving a warning that the temperature of the exhaust gas from its right engine was very high.

The pilots of Flight 816 shut down the turbine and landed with the left engine, Kenichi Furukawa, an ANA spokesman, said by phone from Tokyo. All 203 passengers and 11 crew members are safe, said Ryosei Nomura, another spokesman. The company has yet to determine the cause of the warning.
