30th Apr 2013

KABUL, (Xinhua): Monday’s cargo plane crash which took place in Bagram district, eastern Afghan province of Parwan claimed the lives of all seven people aboard, a provincial source said Tuesday.


Bagram, lying some 50 km north of Afghan capital Kabul, is the main military base of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.


The sources also said that five of the victims were Americans.


Police chief of Parwan province Abdul Rahman Sarjang told Xinhua on Monday that the accident took place on the runway of Bagram airfield due to technical problems shortly after the plane took off.


The type of the aircraft and the name of the company owning it were not clear yet.


Following the incident, Taliban insurgent group, fighting an insurgency of more than one decade, claimed responsibility for the plane crash.


The armed outfit in a statement sent to media claimed that Taliban fighters targeted a cargo plane of the U.S. forces next to the Bagram airbase at 04:00 p.m. local time Monday. The plane caught fire and all aboard was killed. U.S. military has yet to make comment.


Without giving details on the modalities of attack or type of weapons used in the attack, the Taliban statement stressed that targeting and crashing the plane is part of the Taliban spring offensive codenamed “Khalid Bin Waleed” which was announced Saturday.
