Plane carrying 152 crashes in Pakistan - Yahoo! News

AP 4:30 am-A passenger jet carrying 152 people crashed into the hills surrounding Pakistan's capital amid rain and caught fire Wednesday, officials said. At least 25 people were killed and five survived with injuries, but many more were feared dead in the smoking wreck.

The cause of the Airblue crash was not immediately clear, said Pervez George, a civil aviation official. He said the plane had left the southern city of Karachi at 7:45 a.m. for a two-hour scheduled flight to Islamabad and was trying to land during difficult, cloudy weather. Airblue is a private service based in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city.
It's a sign of the times and kinda sad that the first thing I thought on seeing the headline was "terrorists".
