Mystery crash in AfghanistanU.S. officials confirmed Monday that a manned, American surveillance aircraft crashed in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.

Army Col. Sonny Leggett, a spokesman for the U.S.-led coalition in Kabul, denied Taliban claims that other aircraft had crashed.

“While the cause of crash is under investigation, there are no indications the crash was caused by enemy fire,” Leggett said in a statement. “We will provide additional information as it becomes available. Taliban claims that additional aircraft have crashed are false."

Leggett identitfied the military plane as a Bombardier E-11A.
