The Plane Carrying 107 People Crashed Into Residential Areas In Pakistan

The scene of the plane crash. 

A plane carrying 107 people who were crew members and passengers crashed and crashed into a residential area in the port city of Karachi, in southern Pakistan.

On the afternoon of May 22, an Airbus SE jet operated by Pakistan International Airlines crashed with 107 people on board, the Civil Aviation Authority of the country (CAA) said.

PK 8303 flight from Lahore to Karachi has 99 passengers and 8 crew on board, CAA said. The country's army Tweet tweeted that the military has arrived at the site of the incident to conduct relief and rescue efforts.

This was the second incident for this Pakistani airline in less than four years. The chairman of the airline resigned in late 2016, less than a week after the ATR-42 plane crash that killed 47 people.

The incident occurred when Pakistan was gradually resuming domestic flights after the coronavirus pandemic.

A CAA representative could not confirm the number of casualties and said the authorities were waiting for more information.
