Military confirms five killed in Iraq plane crash

A military spokesman says four U.S. Air Force personnel and an Iraqi have been killed in a plane crash near Baghdad.

Lieutenant Colonel Fred Wellman says the Iraqi Air Force plane crashed around noon Monday in a province about 80 miles northeast of the capital.

Wellman says the crash investigation is ongoing. Investigators are not certain who was in control of the plane or why it crashed. However, strong winds buffeted the region Monday.
