A US Air Force E-11A plane crashed in Taliban-held territory in south-west Afghanistan.
The initial reports indicated it was an Afghan Ariana passenger plane that crashed in Ghazni province with 83 people on board, but late the state-owned Afghan Ariana rejected the report and said in a statement that all their flights have been conducted normally.
The plane has crashed in the Deh Yak district of Ghazni province, an area that is under the control of the Taliban.
Provincial government spokesman Arif Noori told CBS News’ Ahmad Mukhtar the plane appeared to have been a flight between the southern city of Kandahar and the capital Kabul, about 200 miles to the north. Ghazni province is between those two locations.
