The pilot of a flight that crashed in Pakistan made a mayday call just before losing contact, the airline said.

He also told flight controllers of an engine problem at 16:09 local time (11:09 GMT) on Wednesday, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Chairman Muhammad Azam Saigol told reporters.

All 48 people on the twin-propeller plane flying to Islamabad were killed.

An investigation is ongoing, but the carrier has insisted strict checks left "no room for any technical error".
