Kabul: A Ukrainian plane in Kabul to evacuate its stranded citizens from Afghanistan has been hijacked and diverted to Iran, a Ukraine Minister was quoted as saying in media reports.

The plane had flown to Afghanistan's capital Kabul last week to evacuate the Ukranians stuck in the conflict-racked country.

A Ukrainian plane in Afghanistan to evacuate its citizens was hijacked and diverted to Iran, reports quoted a Ukraine Minister as saying.

The plane had reportedly arrived last week to evacuate Ukrainians.

"Last Sunday, our plane was hijacked by other people. On Tuesday, the plane was practically stolen from us, it flew into Iran with an unidentified group of passengers onboard instead of airlifting Ukrainians. Our next three evacuation attempts were also not successful because our people could not get into the airport," Ukraine's Deputy Foreign Minister Yevgeny Yenin was quoted as saying by Russian News Agency TASS.

More details on the incident are awaited.
