  1. Spy plane crash leaves 4 dead in Africa

    Tuesday 21 February 2012

    A US spy plane crashed six miles from the only US base in Africa on Saturday, killing four soldiers on board, the Pentagon admitted on Monday.

    The military said the crash occurred at about 8pm in Djibouti and that US personnel from Camp Lemonnier had raced to the scene. The cause of the crash is reportedly under investigation.

    Camp Lemonnier lies just miles from the border with Somalia.

    Specialist Ryan Whitney said initial indications are that the plane did not crash because of hostile fire and that the plane had been conducting an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance mission.

    A statement from US Africa Command called it a “routine” flight.

    Amy Oliver, public affairs director of the Air Force 1st Special Operations Wing, said the single-engine, fixed-wing U-28A was returning from a mission in support of occupation forces in Afghanistan.

    As well as hosting Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti is home to the largest French army camp in Africa.
