Official US And Iraqi Reports Conflicting
An apparent midair collision of two UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters
in northern Baghdad has killed one and injured four soldiers,
according to US military reports.
According to US spokesman Lt. Patrick Evans, the helicopters
crashed while landing Saturday night at Combat Outpost Ford in
Adhamiya, a northern Baghdad neighborhood on the eastern bank of
the Tigris River. Enemy fire is not suspected, Lt. Evans said.
The crash killed one Iraqi soldier, and injured two US troops
and two Iraqi soldiers. Lt. Evans added that the total number of
persons onboard the two Blackhawks was not known at the time.
Two Iraqi Interior Ministry officials also reported a US
helicopter crash, but with details significantly different from the
US reports, according to CNN.
The Iraqi officials described the downing of a single US
helicopter in northeastern Baghdad in Shiite-held Talbiya,
resulting from a clash between US-backed Iraqi forces and gunmen
that continued late into the night.
The Iraqi spokesmen said casualty figures were unknown because
the area is sealed off.
