While the Pentagon has refused to immediately comment on the incident, anonymous USA officials have confirmed to Reuters the loss of a military plane.
Taliban claimed they shot down a United States plane in the Deh Yak district of Ghazni province, an area that is under the control of Taliban militants. US officials were not immediately available for comment.
A journalist in the area told the AP that he saw a burning aircraft a little more than six miles from a U.S. military base.
Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the Associated Press the plane was a US airforce plane. The damage was so extensive it was hard to identify the bodies, he added.
The Washington Post could not independently verify the location of the crash.
