    Oh damn. That is tragic. RIP TO ALL.
    Since it happened in affternoon people in the houses must be sleeping in lockdown or watching tv. Never they would have thought of such a thing happening. Cant imagine the moment that thing could have came down heavily on houses. Tragic.

    Smoke seen in the skies over buildings in an area of Pakistan where a Pakistan Airlines flight crashed shortly before landing.
    A Pakistan Airlines flight with more than 100 people on board has crashed in the Pakistani city of Karachi, an airline spokesman has said.

    Pakistan's Aviation Ministry said the flight was carrying 99 passengers and eight crew members.

    Flight PK803 took off from Lahore and was due to land at 2.30pm local time (7.30pm AEST) in Karachi but went missing from the radar, Pakistan Airlines spokesman Abdullah Khan told CNN.

    The flight typically takes an hour and a half to travel from the northeastern city of Lahore, the capital of Pakistan's most populous Punjab province to Karachi.

    The Pakistani army said its quick reaction force and paramilitary troops have reached the site for relief and rescue efforts alongside civil administration.

    There were no immediate reports on the number of casualties.
    Witnesses said the Airbus A320 appeared to attempt to land two or three times before crashing in a residential area near Jinnah International Airport.

    The residential area on the edge of the airport known as Model Colony is a poor area and heavily congested.
    Local television reports showed smoke coming from the direction of the airport. Ambulances were on their way to the airport.

    More to come...
