There is "no chance" of any survivors after a plane carrying up to 130 people crashed while trying to land in bad weather near Islamabad on Friday, police said.


"There is no chance of any survivors. It will be only a miracle. The plane is totally destroyed," police officer Fazle Akbar told AFP from the crash site.

There were conflicting reports about how many people were on board the Bhoja Air Boeing 737.

A senior defence ministry official said initial reports suggested there were 126 people on board, Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority said it was carrying 121 passengers and nine crew, and the chief of Islamabad police Bani Amin told AFP from the crash site that 127 were on board.
