Passenger plane crashes in northeastern Afghanistan

A passenger plane crashed this Sunday in the mountainous region of Badakhshan, in northeastern Afghanistan, without details about the situation of the passengers being known at the moment.

“A plane crashed in the Tupkhana area of ​​the Zebak district, in the province of Badakhshan,” Badakhshan police spokesperson Ihsanullah Kamgar told EFE.

The plane possibly came from India, but they are still studying the details, he added.

A police team from Zebak has traveled to the area where the accident took place to provide more details in the coming hours, the spokesperson said.

At the moment, the number of passengers on board is unknown, as well as the plane model and the cause that may have caused this accident.

The area where the accident took place is part of the Hindu Kush mountain range, located in the east of the country, a point of great seismic activity.

On February 3, 2005, Kam Air Flight 904 was flying on a local route from the city of Herat to Kabul when it crashed in mountainous terrain. All 97 passengers and 8 crew members died in the accident.
