Army aircraft crashes into building in Pakistan killing 18 people on the spot (photos)

At least 18 people were killed and several injured when a small military plane crashed into a residential area near the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi.

Five crew members and 13 civilians were among the dead, rescue services said.

The aircraft was on a training flight when it crashed and set off a fire across several homes. One witness said the plane was ablaze before the crash.

The King Air 350 turboprop reportedly took a steep turn near its destination airport before coming down.


Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan offered his condolences and wished a "quick recovery for the injured", according to a tweet sent by the Pakistani government.
