Pakistan’s female fighter pilot dies in training crash

One of Pakistan’s few female fighter jet pilots was killed in a training crash. The Pakistani Air Force says Marium Mukhtiar was the first of its women pilots to “embrace martyrdom”. To ensure the safety of civilians on the ground, Mukhtiar and Squadron Leader Saqib Abbasi were forced to eject while flying. Mukhtiar’s body was flown to an air force base in Karachi for her funeral. Abbasi was said to have sustained minor injuries.
