Volunteers look for survivors of a plane that crashed in a residential area of Karachi, Pakistan, May 22, 2020.

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan's state-run airline said Thursday it will ground 150 pilots, accusing them of obtaining licenses by having others take exams for them, an accusation that followed a probe into last month's crash that killed 97 people in Karachi.

Abdullah Hafeez, a spokesman for Pakistan International Airlines, did not give additional details about the alleged cheating but said a process to fire the pilots had been initiated.

"We will make it sure that such unqualified pilots never fly aircraft again," he told The Associated Press. He said the safety of passengers was the airline's top priority.
