1. U.S. Army Helicopter Crashes in Baghdad (Friday 1/28/05)
1 minute ago Middle East - AP

BAGHDAD, Iraq - An Army helicopter crashed in southwest Baghdad on Friday night, and the fate of the crew was not immediately known, a U.S. military official said.

U.S. military officials do not believe the helicopter was hit by hostile fire, Lt. Col. James Hutton said.

The OH-58 Kiowa helicopter usually carries a crew of two pilots and is unlikely to carry large numbers of passengers.

Ground units were at the scene, but the status of the crew was not immediately known, Hutton told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
