The plane crashed in Pakistan with 107 passengers, likely survived | Instant News


A passenger jet crashed Friday in Pakistan near the southern port city of Karachi, with 98 passengers.

Officials said at least two passengers survived, but it was unclear whether anyone died when the plane crashed or how many were injured or died.

Initial reports said engine failure during the landing attempt at Jinnah International Airport was the cause.

The aircraft belonged to the International Airlines owned by the Pakistani government, according to Associated Press.

The plane came from the eastern city of Lahore with 99 passengers and eight crew members, said Abdul Sattar Kokhar, a spokesman for the country’s civil aviation authority, the wire service also reported.

Witnesses reportedly saw the Airbus A320 apparently trying to make at least two landing efforts before it crashed in the impoverished residential area.
