WATCH: U.S. cargo plane crash kills seven in Afghanistan A dashboard camera recorded the horrifying crash
(Kabul) -- Seven people are dead following a cargo plane
crash near the Afghan capital city of Kabul. The U.S.-run plane went
down shortly after takeoff today from the Bagram air base. The Taliban
claimed responsibility for the crash, but NATO officials say there are
no reports of insurgent activity in the area. There's no word yet on
the nationalities of the seven victims.
Saturday, four U.S. service members were killed when their surveillance
aircraft went down in southern Afghanistan. Officials cited bad weather
as the cause of that crash.
