Plane crashes in Afghanistan with 43 on board

An Afghan passenger plane crashed into the mountains of northern Afghanistan on Monday with 43 people on board, including foreigners, the interior ministry told AFP.

The Pamir Airways plane was en route from the northern province of Kunduz to Kabul when it came down over the Hindu Kush mountains. The cause of the crash was not immediately clear.

The government said the aircraft lost radio contact about 30 kilometres (19 miles) from the capital. It was carrying 38 passengers and five crew, interior ministry spokesman Zemarai Bashary told AFP.
