Iraqi Dies in U.S. Helicopter Collision
An Iraqi soldier died Saturday evening when two U.S. Blackhawk helicopters collided while landing in Baghdad.
Lt. Patrick Evans, a spokesman for the U.S. military, said the crash did not appear to be the result of insurgent fire, CNN reported.
The UH-60 Blackhawks were landing at Combat Outpost Ford in northern Baghdad.
Two U.S. and two Iraqi soldiers were hurt, Evans said.
