Smoke and fumes entered the flight deck and cabin during passenger disembarkation. Both engines were shut down at the time but the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) was running. The aircraft commander ordered an evacuation of the passengers still on board. This was completed successfully, using a combination of escape slides and the normal disembarkation route. A faulty APU was identified as the source of the smoke and fumes. There was one minor injury.
