Search efforts for passengers aboard an Afghan plane that went down on Monday have resumed, after being hampered by dense fog and darkness. 44 people were on board.

Relatives combed the rugged landscape near the Salang Pass on foot. Afghan military helicopters flew in and out of clouds in hopes of spotting signs of the wreckage. The plane, operated by Pamir Airways, a private Afghan airline, was en route from Kunduz to Kabul. Air traffic controllers lost contact when the plane was about 85 kilometers north of Kabul. NATO dispatched a aircraft to the last known position, but it had to turn back because of fog.
