Jet crashes moments before landing at airport in Karachi

Hindustan Times

A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Airbus A-320, on a flight originating from Lahore, crashed into a densely populated Karachi neighbourhood near the airport on Friday afternoon and erupted into a fireball, killing most of the 107 passengers and crew on board, but leaving at least three confirmed survivors.

Rescue workers scoured the wreckage of the aircraft and sifted through gutted and damaged buildings in the neighbourhood looking for more likely survivors or bodies, including of residents who may have perished.

The aircraft, which made two approaches ahead of landing, initially reported a problem with its landing gear.
