Two passengers and one crew member were slightly injured when a Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A.310 was forced to dive 600 feet to narrowly avoid a collision with an Air Blue A.320 plane over southern Pakistan. The PIA plane was carrying 179 passengers and crew on a flight from Islamabad to Karachi. The other aircraft, which was carrying 137 passengers and crew on a flight from Karachi to Lahore landed safely. (Reuters)
