Egypt has expressed its sincere condolences for the victims of a Pakistani plane which crashed in a residential neighbourhood in Karachi on Friday killing and injuring dozens of victims.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Egypt’s foreign ministry extended the condolences of the Egyptian people and government to their Pakistani counterparts and the families of the victims, wishing the wounded speedy recovery.

It also stressed that Egypt supports Pakistan through this painful adversity.

On Friday, a Pakistan International Airlines flight PK 8303, an Airbus A320, crashed in a dense residential neighbourhood in the city of Karachi in southern Pakistan.

The death toll from the crash stands at 97 with two survivors, Reuters reported.

Pakistan resumed domestic flights last week after it had been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
