Gulp! A Third Of Pakistan's Commercial Pilots Have Fake Licenses

Pakistan's aviation minister says more than 30% of commercial airline pilots in Pakistan have fake licenses.

The revelation came in a new report blaming pilot error for a crash in May that killed 97 people near Karachi.

The two pilots were chatting about the coronavirus pandemic during sensitive parts of the landing procedure.

The report said they also repeatedly ignored warnings from air traffic controllers.

Watch: Pak terror tunnel unearthed in J&K; Karachi sacks used in construction

The Border Security Force unearthed a tunnel dug from Pakistan to push terrorists into Jammu and Kashmir. The tunnel's opening was discovered in J&K's Samba, just 400 m from a Pakistani border post. The BSF showed sandbags with Pakistani markings which were used to reinforce the structure of the tunnel. The sacks had names of Pakistani factories located in Karachi. NS Jamwal, Inspector General of the Border Security Force, said that the tunnel seemed to go to a depth of around 25 ft. A J&K police officer said that pushing terrorists via tunnels was an old tactic of Pakistan, possibly imitated from Hamas which also uses underground routes to enter Israel.
