NAWABSHAH, Pakistan, July 9 (UPI) -- An A-319 Airbus carrying six crew members and 122 passengers made an emergency landing in Pakistan Monday because of a hydraulic-system failure, officials said.

No injuries were reported.

The aircraft was on a flight from Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to New Delhi, the Indo-Asian News Service reported.

"The aircraft was flying over Pakistani airspace when the pilot saw a warning light in the cockpit and sought permission to land at the nearest airport, which was Nawabshah," an Air India representative said.
