Pilot averts 'major disaster'.
The plane's tyres all burst when emergency brakes were applied, but all 135 people on board were unhurt.
The Pakistan International Airways plane was stuck on the runway after the incident, which happened at about 5am UK time yesterday.
An airline official and state media reported that the pilot's actions had averted "a major disaster".
Six other flights had to be diverted to the airport at the eastern city of Lahore but the plane was later dragged to the airport apron to allow normal use of the runway.
