Tributes have been pouring in for a young Afghan footballer who fell to his death after trying to stow away on a US military plane.

19-year-old Zaki Anwari, who played for Afghanistan’s national youth team, had been trying to flee Afghanistan via Kabul airport.

Images emerged on Monday showing hundreds of people running alongside a US air force plane as it moved down a runway. Some people were seen clinging to its side.

Local media reports said that at least two people fell to their deaths after it took off. The US air force has also confirmed that human remains were found in the landing gear of an aircraft after it arrived in Qatar.
