66. One pilot confirmed killed
At least one US Marine Corps pilot has died and another is missing after two F/A-18 Hornet jets crashed in Iraq.

The planes are thought to have been involved in a mid-air collision in bad weather on Monday evening, reports say.

A US military spokesman said the planes had been flying too high to have been shot down by hostile fire.
