KABUL (Reuters) - The wreckage of an Afghan airliner that went missing with 104 people on board has been found near the capital, Kabul, a day after it was turned away because of heavy snow, a Western security source says.
The Kam Air Boeing 737 was found to the northeast of the capital on Friday, but the security source did not say if there were any survivors.
NATO troops and helicopters have been searching for the plane, which was on a flight from the western city of Herat to Kabul on Thursday when it went missing after being turned away from Kabul airport.
At least seven of the 96 passengers were foreigners and six of the eight crew members were from Kyrgyzstan, Kam Air deputy director Feda Mohammed Fedayi said.
The foreigners included three American women working for a Massachusetts-based company, Management Sciences for Health, its Kabul representative William Schiffbauer said.
"We don't know if there were any survivors," the security source said, adding that the passengers included five international aid workers and nine Turkish nationals.
