Pakistani plane crashA passenger plane belonging to state-run Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has crashed near the southern port city of Karachi, killing all 107 passengers and crew, the city’s mayor has said.

The PIA flight PK8303 was on a routine domestic service between from Lahore to Karachi, and was almost at the end of the 90-minute flight when crashed on the approach to Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.

The Airbus A320 aircraft was carrying 99 passengers and eight crew members, said Abdul Sattar Kokhar of the country’s civil aviation authority.

Mayor Wasim Akhtar told the Associated Press all 107 passengers and crew were killed, but civil aviation officials said at least two people survived.
