Social Media Roundup - Crash of the Bhoja Airline

Most of the victims of the crash of a Pakistani airliner crashed near Islamabad, causing 127 deaths, have been buried over the weekend while research continues to elucidate the causes of the tragedy.

Thirteen of the 127 people killed were buried on Saturday night in Islamabad and 36 other funerals were held Sunday in Karachi and other cities. Other burials were scheduled along on Sunday.

The images of the Wave television showed relatives of the victims, shaken by the pain and dozens of coffins coming out of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad's main hospital where the bodies were gathered for identification.

Nine bodies were not identified by what they would be subjected to DNA testing, a hospital official said.

The apparatus of privately Bhoja Air crashed on Friday in an agricultural area a few kilometers from Islamabad airport. With the impact it exploded on a pyre.

The plane journey affected Karachi-Islamabad and had started landing maneuvers in the middle of a storm.

The families of the victims did not hide his anger on Saturday, denouncing the irresponsibility of the authorities which they say caused the accident, two years after an Airbus A321 for the private company Airblue, also in Islamabad, which killed 152 people.

Bhoja Air resumed its domestic flights in March between Islamabad and Karachi with several Boeings 737, after being forced in 2000 by Civil Aviation to suspend its flights due to financial difficulties.
