Mixed Accounts After U.S. Military Plane Crashes in Afghanistan

HeadlineJan 28, 2020

In Afghanistan, an American military plane crashed Monday in the eastern province of Ghazni in an area largely controlled by the Taliban. The Taliban claimed they brought down the plane, but U.S. officials say the crash was not caused by enemy fire. The number of people who had been on board the plane has not been confirmed.

Elsewhere in Afghanistan, government air raids in northern Balkh province killed at least seven civilians Sunday, according to local reports. And on Monday, at least 11 officers were killed after Taliban fighters stormed a police base in Baghlan province.
