Bad weather blamed as aircraft plunges into the Margalla Hills outside Islamabad.

    A passenger aircraft has crashed on the outskirts of the Pakistani capital, Islamabad, killing all 152 people on board.

    Reports suggest air traffic controllers had told the pilot to divert due to the poor weather, but lost contact with the plane shortly after.
