Fifteen dead bodies of the victims of the Afghan passenger plane which crashed five days ago have been found in mountains of Gorband district, in the country's northern Parwan province, officials said Friday.

"So far 15 bodies of the plane crash victims have been found," a member of parliament Fatima Aziz who visited the crash site told Xinhua.

She added that the wreckage of the plane was scattered in several places of the snow covered mountains.

Another official and shareholder of the private airliner company Pamir Airways Hajji Khalil Feroz said that the block box of the ill-fated plane was also found.

The passenger plane of Pamir Airways with 43 aboard including eight foreigners went missing en-route to Kabul minutes after taking off from the northern Kunduz province on Monday.
