Pakistani authorities have confirmed there were no survivors after an airliner carrying 152 people crashed outside of Islamabad.

The  Airblue Airbus A321 was carrying 146 passengers and six crew when it crashed in hills north of the city early this morning in foggy and wet conditions.

Two Americans were among the victims, many of whom were businessmen on the flight from Karachi.

Recovery operations are being hampered by bad weather while the crash site on a steep hill has no roads accessing it.
