The jet "crashed due to technical malfunction near Attock. The pilot was fatally injured," an air force statement said, not specifying the type of aircraft.

No loss of civilian life or property was reported on the ground, it said, adding that an inquiry had been ordered to determine the cause of the crash.

Pakistan's air force has a fleet of Chinese aircraft, including F-7PGs and A-5s, plus US-built F-16s and French Mirages. It recently acquired medium-tech JF-17 or Thunder jets, manufactured jointly by China and Pakistan.
