pakistan-planeINDEPENDENT (UK) – There are unlikely to be any survivors from a Pakistani plane carrying up to 47 passengers that crashed near Abottabad, a government official has said.

Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) passenger plane PK 116 was on its way to Islamabad from the northern city of Chitral.

The Pakistani pop star turned evangelical cleric Junaid Jamshed was on the plane when it crashed, local media reports.

“All of the bodies are burned beyond recognition. The debris is scattered,” Taj Muhammad Khan, a government official based in the Havelian region, told Reuters.

Mr Khan, who was at the site of the crash, added that witnesses told him “the aircraft has crashed in a mountainous area, and before it hit the ground it was on fire”.
