WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. military confirmed on Monday a crash by an E-11A military aircraft in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province but, despite claims by Taliban insurgents that they shot it down, said there were “no indications the crash was caused by enemy fire.”

“Taliban claims that additional aircraft have crashed are false,” a U.S. military spokesman, Colonel Sonny Leggett, wrote on Twitter.
