A Pakistan International Airlines plane carrying around 100 people crashed Friday near the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, according to the civil aviation authority.

The plane operated by the state-owned airline, reportedly an Airbus A320, was traveling from Lahore and was due to land at the airport in Karachi.

The crash reportedly happened in a residential area of the city called Model Colony, a neighborhood around 2 miles northeast of Jinnah International Airport.

A spokesman for the national carrier said the plane, PK 8303, had 99 passengers and 8 crew members, but other reports stated there were 99 people on board in total. There was no immediate word on possible survivors and Reuters reported, quoting a doctor at a nearby hospital, there were at least five corpses from the crash.

Local media said houses were damaged and that the army’s Quick Reaction Force arrived at the crash site to assist with rescue efforts. Social media footage, unverified by CNBC, showed black plumes of smoke rising from a row of houses.

Rescue workers move a body from the site after a Pakistan International Airlines aircraft after crashed at a residential area in Karachi on May 22, 2020.

Pakistan started allowing some domestic flights from May 16, following the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic. International flights are still reportedly grounded.

Responding to the crash, Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said he was “shocked and saddened.”

“Am in touch with PIA CEO Arshad Malik, who has left for Karachi & with the rescue & relief teams on ground as this is the priority right now. Immediate inquiry will be instituted. Prayers & condolences go to families of the deceased,” Khan said.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi added that he was “deeply grieved over (the) devastating plane crash.” “We are in midst of grave challenges as a nation & in these times of trial we must show resolve & unity,” he said.

A spokesperson for Airbus told CNBC the company was aware of a crash in Pakistan and wasn’t abble to confirm details.
