    A thick cloud of smoke could be seen rising over the hills near the Pakistani capital Islamabad, where a passenger plane carrying over 150 people crashed in bad weather.

    The AirBlue plane lost contact with Islamabad airport's control room on its way from the southern city of Karachi.

    At least one helicopter could be seen flying over the crash site, as smoke rose from the ground.

    Ambulances arrived near the scene, and officials could be seen walking through the forest to reach the plane.

    People gathered at the airport where some were openly mourning.

    More than 100 bodies have been recovered. There is no further information available on casualties.

    The cause of the crash was not immediately known.
