US identifies four American victims in Afghan crash

WASHINGTON - The Pentagon identified four US victims in Saturday's crash of a surveillance aircraft in southern Afghanistan and said the incident appeared unrelated to Taliban violence.
The police chief in Zabul province, Rogh Lewanai, told Reuters on Saturday that bad weather caused the plane to crash, in the district of Shahjoi. At the time, NATO did not identify the nationality of the victims but said they were part of NATO's International Security Assistance Force.
The Pentagon said on Sunday the crash of the MC-12 was under investigation.
