Civilian Cargo Plane Crashes At Bagram Airfield In Afghanistan, Crew Killed

The international coalition in Afghanistan says a cargo plane crashed on April 29 at Bagram Airfield, about 60 kilometers north of Kabul.

Captain Luca Carniel, a spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), said that he "can confirm that one civilian cargo plane crashed very shortly after takeoff in Bagram Airfield."

Carniel denied Taliban reports that it had shot down the plane, saying there were no reports of "insurgent activity during the time of the crash."

There were no immediate reports of casualties.
