A helicopter carrying at least six Turkish engineers and two foreign pilots made an emergency landing in a Taliban-controlled area of eastern Afghanistan, officials have told Reuters, and it is possible they are being held by insurgents.
The helicopter, owned by air charter company Khorasan Cargo Airlines, made an emergency landing in Logar province late on Sunday due to bad weather, a Khorasan staff member said on condition of anonymity.
The helicopter was carrying six or seven engineers from a Turkish construction company, two foreign pilots and an Afghan pilot, the Khorasan staff member said.
Helicopter crashes and "hard landings" happen relatively frequently in mountainous Afghanistan.
