Civilian cargo aircraft crashes in Iraq

BAGHDAD (AP) -- The U.S. military says a civilian cargo aircraft has crashed south of Fallujah, a city in western Iraq.

The military says four to six crew members were on board but their fate is unknown. The military says it does not know the nationality of the aircraft, which reported a malfunction Thursday while traveling from al-Asad air base to Baghdad International Airport.

Iraqi police in Fallujah say the aircraft crashed in the desert. There were no reports of shooting at the time when the aircraft crashed.
