20 Killed In Pakistan Plane Crash

At least 20 people are reported to have died following the crash of a small plane soon after takeoff from the airport in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi.

An army official supervising recovery operations said there were no survivors from the November 5 crash.

Reports said the plane was apparently chartered by the international oil company ENI, which is based in Italy, and was carrying employees of the company.

A Pakistani Civil Aviation Authority spokesman, Pervez George, said it appeared there may have been a technical problem with one of the plane's engines shortly before the crash.

An investigation has been launched.
