BREAKING: Passenger plane crashes in Karachi with over 100 people on board (PICTURES/VIDEO)
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by BBC:
A Pakistan International Airlines plane has crashed in Karachi on a flight from Lahore, aviation officials say.
Flight PK8303, which was carrying around 91 passengers and eight crew, was flying from Lahore to Jinnah International Airport, one of Pakistan’s busiest airports.
The article goes on to state the following:
The cause of the crash is yet to be confirmed. PIA chief executive Air Vice Marshal Arshad Malik said the pilot had told traffic control that the plane was experiencing “technical difficulties”.
The crash comes as Pakistan eases back into commercial flights – the country mere days into resuming flights after a coronavirus-prompted pause – and as Pakistanis prepare to celebrate the end of Ramadan then travel back to their homes.
