An Ilyushin IL-76 freighter, similar to the one pictured, crashed just after take-off from Karachi-Jinnah airport yesterday.

The aircraft had a crew of eight on board, none of whom survived. It is also understood that there were another four fatalities on the ground.

The Ilyushin, operated by Georgia based Sun Way, was carrying relief supplies to Khartoum when it came down in a construction site near the airport. The number of fatalities on the ground may rise as workers were known to be living there.
