US copter crash in Iraq kills 1 soldier
( 2004-01-02 21:00) (Agencies)

A U.S. military helicopter crashed west of Baghdad on Friday, killing one soldier and wounding another, the U.S. military said. The cause was not immediately known.

The crash of the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior near the town of Fallujah was under investigation, the military said.

The area has seen several attacks on helicopters in recent months. In the deadliest single attack on U.S. forces since the Iraq invasion began in March, 17 soldiers were killed when two Black Hawk helicopters collided in mid air above Mosul in what the military said was probably a grenade attack.
