  1. Airliner Crash in Karachi Kills 97

    A Pakistani airliner crashed Friday into a residential area in the country's largest city, Karachi, killing nearly 100 people. Two of the Airbus A-320's passengers survived and were hospitalized after the crash of Pakistan International Airlines flight 8303, which was coming from Lahore and approaching Karachi's main airport when its pilot radioed, "we have lost engines" before crashing short of a second landing attempt. One survivor told of being blinded by smoke while hearing screams before leaping 10 feet to escape the flaming wreck. It was unclear if anyone on the ground was killed, and the cause of the crash is being investigated.
