A French court fined Continental Airlines 200,000 euros (266,860 dollars) Monday after finding the US carrier "criminally responsible" for a deadly 2000 Concorde crash caused by a piece of metal left on the runway.

The court gave a Continental employee a 15-month suspended jail sentence for the crash in which 113 people died, but acquitted one of his colleagues as well as three French former aviation officials.
