The United States confirms that one of its military planes has crashed in Afghanistan. The Muslim group Taliban claims to have brought the plane down. It is indistinct how many people died in the crash.
The Taliban is, therefore, claiming the attack against an American army aircraft. The Islamic group claims that the device was on a spy mission.
Perhaps it is a ‘Bombardier E-11A’, a plane that is indeed used by the US Air Force for electronic surveillance.
America only admits that the plane crashed and that there were perhaps only a few passengers on board.
According to the United States, there is no indication yet that this is an attack. Afghan soldiers are on their way to the site of the disaster. The device crashed in a mountainous area with a lot of snow.
