A Pakistani military jet crashed Friday near the Afghan border, but the two pilots ejected safely, an official said. The Chinese-built FT-6 fighter was on a routine training flight when it crashed in a few miles (kilometers) southwest of the city of Peshawar in the Khyber region, said Pakistan air force spokesman Sarfraz Ahmed Khan. Both pilots ejected safely and there was no report of injuries or damage to property on the ground, Khan said. A technical fault in the engine appeared to have caused the crash, which was under investigation, he said.
