ISLAMABAD Dec 7 There are unlikely to be any
survivors from a Pakistan International Airlines plane that
crashed in a mountainous northern region with 47 people on board
on Wednesday, a government official on the scene said.
"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.
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".
