In Pakistan, 97 people died Friday when a Pakistan International Airlines jet crashed into a crowded, poor neighborhood of Karachi while attempting to land at the city’s airport. Two people survived the crash. Dozens of residents who lived near the crash site were transported to the hospital, but no fatalities were reported on the ground. This is Salah Uddin, a resident of the Karachi neighborhood where the plane crashed.
Salah Uddin: “It is a very tragic incident that has occurred on the occasion of Eid. It is especially painful because people were coming home to celebrate Eid with their loved ones. In a way, we can say the poor people have become martyrs. It is very sad.”
