Twelve dead, including five American soldiers, in U.S. military transport plane crash in Afghanistan
According to NBC, the civilian contractors were working with 'Resolute Support,' the NATO-led mission to train and advise Afghan security forces. It follows the military mission in Afghanistan after combat operations ended at the end of 2014. The cause of the crash is currently under investigation, and there were no reports of enemy fire at the time the plane went down. The Taliban, however, claimed they shot the plane out of the sky, but the group is prone to exaggeration.
