KABUL: A civilian cargo plane crashed shortly after take-off at a huge United States-run airbase in Afghanistan on Monday (Tuesday in Manila), killing all seven crew members on board, officials said. Rescue teams rushed to the scene after the plane smashed into the ground inside the boundaries of Bagram airfield, a key transport hub for US-led military operations in Afghanistan. “All seven of the crew on board died in the accident,” a spokes-man for the NATO military coalition said, adding that there was no reported insurgent activity in the area at the time.
