Air India Plane Makes Urgent Landing in Pakistan

An Air India plane that was flying to New Delhi has made an emergency landing in Pakistan.

All 122 passengers, and crew members on board the Airbus A319 were reported to be safe following the incident on July 9.

Reports say a technical problem is suspected of forcing the early landing.

Pakistani authorities said the plane, flying from Abu Dhabi to the Indian capital, made the unscheduled stop at Nawabshah airport in southern Pakistan.

Officials said a group of Indian experts was expected to fly to Nawabshah to inspect the aircraft and attempt repairs so the plane can leave Pakistan.
