A passenger plane carrying 98 people crashed into a residential area in Karachi, Pakistan, on Friday, destroying at least five homes. Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar initially said the crash killed everyone on board, but aviation officials later said at least two people survived. It remains unclear how many people in the poor and heavily congested residential area near the airport also died in the accident. The Airbus A320, operated by state-run Pakistani International Airlines, had departed from Lahore, Pakistan.
