KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — The head of Kabul's airport says an Ariana Afghan Airlines jet has slid off a rain-soaked runway in the Afghan capital but that no one was hurt.

Yaquob Rasouli says the incident happened on Thursday at the Kabul International Airport.

Rasouli says the aircraft was not damaged in the early afternoon incident and that it came to a stop off the runway on its own.

Ariana flight 312 is a Boeing 737 and had just landed from New Delhi with 130 passengers on board.
