Military: Helicopter down northwest of Baghdad


BAGHDAD, Iraq — A Sea Knight helicopter went down northwest of Baghdad today, the military said, the fifth helicopter lost in Iraq in just over two weeks.

The CH-46 helicopter went down about 20 miles northwest of the capital, U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell said, but he declined to comment on casualties.

“A quick reaction force is on site and the investigation is going on as we speak,” he said. “It would probably be inappropriate for me to talk about whether or not there are or are not casualties.”

Witnesses said the helicopter had been shot down in a field in the Sheik Amir area northwest of Baghdad, sending smoke rising from the scene, in a Sunni-dominated area between the Taji air base, 12 miles north of Baghdad, and Garma, 20 miles west of the capital.
