KARACHI: A team of French experts, who were in the country to ascertain the reasons behind the PIA plane crash near Karachi airport on May 22, have completed their investigation and will return to France on Monday (today).

On Sunday, the 11-member Airbus team, aircraft manufacturers, again surveyed the crash site on the plane, the runway at the airport and the approach tower.
