Hostile Fire Not Believed A Factor
ANN REALTIME REPORTING 04.15.07 1000 EDT: US
and British military officials in Iraq confirmed early Sunday two
British transport helicopters are down north of Baghdad. Two
British soliders were killed in the apparent midair collision, and
at least one other was injured.
The accident occurred over a rural area southwest of Taji, near
a large US air base. Initial media reports misidentified the
Eurocopter AS332 Super Puma helicopters as American.
Enemy fire is not believed to be a factor.
"Initial reports indicate that the crash was an accident and was
not a result of an attack by insurgents," UK Defense Secretary Les
Browne said. "An investigation is under way and I will not comment
further on the details of the incident at this stage."
