A US Air Force plane carrying five people crashed in eastern Afghanistan Monday, confirms Pentagon officials.
“It was not immediately clear if there were any survivors and officials said there are no indications that the plane – an E-11A – was shot down. The plane is the military version of the civilian Bombardier Global Express business jet,” reports Fox News.
“Local Afghan officials had said earlier on Monday that a passenger plane from Afghanistan’s Ariana Airlines had crashed in a Taliban-held area of the province. However, Ariana Airlines told the AP that none of its planes had crashed in Afghanistan,” adds Fox.
