A fighter jet has crashed in southern Pakistan near the port city of Karachi, leaving the pilot dead, Pakistani officials says.

The Mirage aircraft was on a “routine night operational training mission” when it crashed, Commodore Tariq Mahmood said on Saturday.

The Pakistan Air Force says no civilian casualties or property damage has been reported on the ground.

Authorities suspect the accident has been caused by a technical fault in the airplane.
