The Pakistani authorities plan to finish an investigation into the recent plane crash in three months, Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan said during a press conference on Saturday.

"We will try to fill the report on the investigation of the Pakistan International Airlines plane within three months", Khan said.

He added that Pakistan would pay approximately $6,200 to the families of victims as well as $3,100 to the two survivors. Those who had their property damaged by the crash will be compensated as well.
