A Pakistan International Airlines jet, an Airbus A320 passenger aircraft with 99 people on board, crashed in a residential neighborhood near Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Pakistan on May 22. The flight, carrying eight crew members and 91 passengers from Lahore to Karachi, went down as it approached the airport after losing contact with air traffic control. While the cause of the crash is as yet unconfirmed, Pakistan Airlines Chairman Arshad Malik has said the pilot reported a "technical problem" on final approach to the landing strip. We look at the situation in pictures.
