Aircraft crashes at base in Afghanistan
Kabul: A civilian cargo aircraft crashed at Bagram Air Field, north of the Afghan capital, soon after takeoff on Monday, the US-led military coalition said.
It is not immediately known if there were casualties. Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the crash, but the coalition denied that, said in a statement, "Taliban`s claims are false. There was no enemy activity or involvement during this incident."
The coalition said emergency crews rushed to the scene and were assessing the situation. Capt Luca Carniel, a coalition spokesman, said the aircraft crashed from a low altitude right after takeoff. He had no information about how many people were on board or the name of the company operating the aircraft.
