A Pakistan International Airlines passenger plane crashed soon after takeoff on a domestic flight Monday in eastern Pakistan, killing all 45 people on board, officials said. "All 41 passengers and four crew members onboard the plane have died," said Iftikhar Babar, the district coordination officer for Multan city. Malik Bashir, PIA's station manager at Multan airport, confirmed there were no survivors. He said the cause of the crash was not yet known, adding that the plane took off normally. "Whatever happened to it was after takeoff," he said. "The plane has burned completely and bodies are being pulled out of the wreckage."
