Afghan rescuers have spotted the tail section of a Pamir Airways plane carrying about 40 people that crashed Monday, officials said Thursday.
The plane went down somewhere between the Afghan capital Kabul and Kunduz in the north, and rescuers and police have been searching in the mountains for the wreckage since then despite poor weather conditions.
The tail section of the plane was spotted in the mountains of Shakardara northwest of Kabul and was identified by aerial photographs taken by rescuers showing the airline’s logo, the head of Pamir Airways told the BBC.
The report said the rescue teams were yet to reach the site.
Those aboard the flight included six foreigners, the BBC reported, but it is not clear what caused the plane to crash.
Pamir Airways, a private airline, mostly operates on domestic routes.
CNN also reported the finding, quoting an official with Afghanistan’s transport and aviation ministry.
The CNN report said the plane, carrying 38 passengers and a six-member crew, was flying to Kabul from Kunduz when it crashed near the Salang Pass in the Hindu Kush range.
