Deadly plane crash in Pakistan

| No Comments

A passenger plane crash in Pakistan killed all 127 people onboard as it was trying to land at the airport in Islamabad on Friday.

According to IBN World the aircraft was a Bhoja Air Boeing 737-200 that took off from Karachi and was heading to the capital city in poor weather conditions, which included violent rain, wind and thunderstorms.

Villagers and rescue workers worked together to search for bodies among the wreckage that was scattered out over a one-kilometer area, India Today reported.

"The plane burst into air like a ball of fire," an eyewitness at the crash site said. "There were bodies all around."

India Today reported that this was Bhoja Air's first evening flight from Karachi. The airline had just restarted operations after it was discontinued because of financial difficulties in 2001.
