Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan failed to return to his home country after the plane carrying him and his delegation failed to function within hours of the return trip from the US and was forced to land in New York.
The crew discovered a technical problem aboard the jet four hours after leaving New York for Pakistan on Friday night, Pakistani media reported. According to Samaa TV, the aircraft's electronics failed.
The details of the malfunction are unclear, but apparently serious, as the aircraft was forced to turn near Toronto, Canada. He then landed at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport. Khan was returning to Pakistan after concluding a weeklong visit to the US, where he addressed the UN General Assembly (UNGA).
Since the fault could not be corrected immediately, Khan spent an extra night in a hotel. He should book a commercial flight home if the jet problem is not resolved by Saturday.

The defective plane apparently belongs to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who loaned it to Khan after the Pakistani Prime Minister arrived in Riyadh on a commercial flight for a visit before UNGA.
