PIA crash tragedy

PIA plane flying from Lahore has crashed into model colony near Jinnah International Airport Karachi. The PIA spokesperson confirmed there was 107 passengers including staff on board the flight from Lahore.

The airline said the pilot had reported technical issues and witnesses said the aircraft attempted to land two or three times before hitting a mobile tower and crashing into houses in the Model Colony area, a few kilometres away from the airport.

Smoke billowed from the scene where caved-in roofs could be seen as debris lay scattered in the streets while ambulances hurried through chaotic crowds, with fears residents are injured or dead.
