BERLIN (AP) -- More woes for Boeing's 787 Dreamliner.

The European Aviation Safety Agency is grounding the troubled jetliner, following the same move by Japan, India and the U.S.

There's concern that lithium batteries can leak corrosive fluid and start fires in Boeing's newest plane. A Japanese 787 made an emergency landing this week.

Poland's airline says it may seek compensation from Boeing Co. for the grounding of its two 787 planes.

And Ethiopia Airlines has grounded its four Boeing 787s.
