The Taliban claimed responsibility Friday for downing a Black Hawk helicopter in southern Afghanistan.

“Yesterday (Thursday) evening Taliban fighters shot down a helicopter and killed all its passengers in Khanashen Dewalak area near Garmsir, southern Helmand province,” a Taliban spokesman wrote to CNN.

The helicopter’s four crew members, all of them American, are believed to be dead, a U.S. military official said.

The copter was flying in bad weather, the official said Thursday. “We cannot yet rule out enemy action,” the official said.
