Emergency officials were on Saturday searching through the wreckage of a passenger jet that crashed into a muddy wheat field in Islamabad while trying to land in a violent thunderstorm.
"We are searching and looking for more bodies. We did search extensively last night, but it was dark, so it''s possible that now we may be able to recover five to seven more bodies from here," said rescue worker Zameer Ahmed.
The government said there appeared to be no survivors in the crash of the Boeing 737-200 near Benazir Bhutto International Airport - the second major air disaster in the Pakistani capital in less than two years.
The Bhoja Air plane was on a flight from Karachi to Islamabad.
The plane had been given clearance to land, said an air traffic controller who did not give his name because he was not authorised to speak to the media.
A violent thunderstorm was lashing Islamabad at the time of the crash, about 6:40 p.m. (1340 GMT) local time.
Islamabad police chief Bani Yameen said nobody on the ground was reported killed, but all on board had perished.
In a statement, the Boeing Company extended its condolences to the families of the victims and offered technical assistance to Pakistan''s Civil Aviation Authority in investigating the crash.
The last major plane crash in the country - and Pakistan''s worst - occurred in July 2010 when an Airbus A321 aircraft operated by domestic carrier Airblue crashed into the hills overlooking Islamabad, killing all 152 people aboard.
A government investigation blamed the pilot for veering off course amid stormy weather.
Bhoja Air started domestic operations in Pakistan in 1993 and eventually expanded to international flights to the United Arab Emirates in 1998.
