Bodies of 2 US crew found at Kyrgyzstan crash site

 

Search teams yesterday found the bodies of two American crew members near where their military refueling plane crashed in the rugged mountains of Kyrgyzstan, while the third crew member was still missing.

The KC-135 plane crashed Friday afternoon about 160 kilometers west of the air base that the U.S. operates in Kyrgyzstan to support military operations in Afghanistan.

Officials at the U.S. Transit Center at the Manas base have released no information yet on the cause of the crash and could not immediately be reached yesterday for any further information.

Emergencies Minister Kubatbek Boronov told the Associated Press that Kyrgyz search teams found the two fragmented bodies yesterday morning and they have not yet been identified. He said military officials from Manas were working with the Kyrgyz rescuers to search for the third crewman and the flight recorders.
