Cargo aircraft crashes into Afghan mountains

A cargo aircraft crashed into Afghan mountains today with 10 people on board, said a spokeswoman for Nato-led peacekeeping forces.

“All we know is that there are an unknown number of casualties, but they could be injuries, not deaths,” said Squadron Leader Annie Gibson-Sexton, a spokeswoman for Nato’s International Security Assistance Force.

It was not immediately clear who the aircraft belonged to. Gibson-Sexton said it did not belong to the Nato force.

Gibson-Sexton said Afghan and ISAF rescuers had reached the crash site 18 miles north-west of Kabul.
