    A plane carrying 152 people crashed into the hills near Islamabad, Pakistan, Wednesday morning. Everyone on board was killed, including two Americans, said a U.S. embassy spokesman, and this is the worst aviation disaster in the country’s history. The Airblue plane left Karachi at 7:45 a.m. for the flight to Pakistan’s capital and, during dangerous cloudy weather, lost contact with the airport control tower at 12:43 p.m. The plane crashed into a wooded hill with no roads, making rescue efforts more difficult. Officials say they’ve been digging through the wreckage with their bare hands as helicopters remove bodies. More than 90 bodies have been found so far.
