U.S. aircraft crashes in Zabul

A U.S. aircraft crashed in southern Afghanistan, killing three U.S. service members and one civlian employee, a statement from NATO-led forces said Friday.

The cause of the crash of the Air Force CV-22 Osprey was not known, said
the International Security Assistance Force statement. Several other service
members were injured in the crash late Thursday night.

The CV-22 went down seven miles west of the city of Qalat, the capital of Zabul province. The aircraft employs tilt-rotor technology that allows it to
take off and land as a helicopter and is used to conduct long-range infiltration and resupply operations, ISAF said.

Zabiullah Mujahid, spokesman for the Taliban in the region, said Taliban fighters shot down the Osprey. Another spokesman, Qari Yoseph, also claimed
responsibility and said that 30 Americans had been killed.
