Searchers found no survivors among 44 people on board an Afghan commercial airliner that crashed this week on a remote mountain north of the capital, Kabul.

The Antonov-24 operated by Pamir Airways disappeared on Monday on a flight from Kunduz to Kabul. The wreckage was spotted on Thursday by a search plane on a 13,500ft (4,100m) mountain in Shakar Darah district.

Three Britons and one American were among eight foreign passengers on the plane, along with nationals from Pakistan and Australia.
