Kam Air suspended operations after 11 crew members are killed

The workers of the Afghan airline died in the violent attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul.

The airline Kam Air, based in Kabul, capital of Afghanistan, decided to suspend all operations after 11 of its crew were killed by a group of Taliban terrorists.

The members of the airline, all foreigners, were in the luxurious Intercontinental Hotel, located on a hill in the Bagh-e-Bala section, when a group of Taliban terrorists mocked the security of the complex and entered with AK47 weapons. After having dinner in the restaurant, the assassins started firing at all the people present and then went to the hotel rooms.

“The attackers went room by room looking for people to shoot them,” said Haseeb, the hotel’s waiter, who managed to flee with eleven companions and take refuge in a room on the fifth floor.

The massacre of the Intercontinental Hotel left 18 dead, 14 of them foreigners. Eleven of the victims were crew members of the airline Kam Air, nine Ukrainians and two Venezuelans.
