Authorities are sifting through the wreckage for clues as to what caused Wednesday's Airblue crash that killed all 152 passengers. Foul weather is suspected.
The Pakistani government declared Thursday as a day of mourning for the victims of the Airblue plane crash that killed all 152 passengers on Wednesday. The Islamabad-bound Airbus A321 slammed into the mountains just 15 kilometers away from the capital's airport. The plane’s wreckage is strewn across the densely forested Margalla Hills, hampering the investigation. In particular, officials say the difficult conditions on the ground have frustrated the search for the plane’s “black box” flight recorder that may provide answers as to what led to the crash.
