ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif expressed deep grief and sorrow over the tragic helicopter crash in Naltar near Gilgit-Baltistan that claimed at least seven lives this morning.

He extended heartfelt condolences to those who lost their lives in this incident and announced a day of mourning.

The convoy of three helicopters was carrying a delegation of foreign diplomats and their aides to Gilgit-Baltistan.

Director General Inter Services Public Relations Asim Bajwa said that the prime minister was in one of the helicopters in the convoy.

However, a statement by Sharif's office had said he was on a plane ─ not helicopter ─ en route to the Gilgit area at the time of the incident, but turned back to Islamabad after news of the crash broke. He was set to inaugurate a chair-lift at a ski resort, one of the region's top administrative officials told AFP.
