Afghan plane crashes with 43 on board


A passenger plane with 43 people on board has crashed in Afghanistan.

A jet en route from the city of Kunduz to the capital went missing in a mountainous area.

NATO-led forces have been asked to help with efforts to locate the plane.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known but it came down in bad weather.

One man at Kabul airport said: “My brother was coming from Kunduz. We spoke to him at eight in the morning. He said he was on the plane but couldn’t talk and would call us back. He’s been missing since then. Nobody is giving us any information.”

Six of the passengers on board the Pamir Airways plane are reported to be foreigners, including three Britons, two Turks and an American. Pamir is one of the three major commercial airlines in Afghanistan.
