A Pakistani military aircraft on a training flight crashed in a built-up area in Rawalpindi city early on Tuesday killing all five crew members and 12 civilians.
A statement from the Pakistani military said the aircraft was on a routine training flight when it crashed but not provide details of the cause of the accident.
