US C-130 military transport plane crushed in eastern Afghanistan.

11 people killed.

“Our mujahideen have shot down US aircraft in Jalalabad. Based on credible information 15 Americans and number of puppet troops were killed.”

Taliban spokesman stated on internet.

It is known fact the Taliban claims are usually exaggerated battlefield claims, and NATO so far has not given details on the cause of the crash.

Although NATO gave no immediate indications that the plane crash was due to militant action, Jalalabad airport has come under attack on several previous occasions.

In December 2012, Taliban suicide bombers killed at least five people in an hours-long battle at the airport, the third attack on it that year.

Most NATO combat troops pulled out of Afghanistan last year but a small contingent remains, including roughly 10,000 American soldiers.

The US soldiers, along with other NATO troops and private contractors, are focusing on training Afghanistan’s national security forces.
