ISLAMABAD, Pakistan—A Pakistan International Airlines plane carrying 48 people crashed in a mountainous area Wednesday after pilots reported the failure of one of its engines, leaving no survivors.

The flight, PK 661, was traveling to Islamabad, the capital, from Chitral, a northern tourist destination near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, when it crashed, said Saeed Wazir, the deputy inspector general of police in Abbottabad district.

Junaid Jamshed, a legendary figure in Pakistani pop music, was among the 48 people killed when a plane crashed into a hillside north of Islamabad, the latest episode in the country’s long history of aviation disasters.
