At least 13 people were killed when a U.S. C-130 aircraft crashed early Friday morning at Jalalabad airport in Afghanistan.
U.S. military officials say the deceased include six U.S. service members and five civilian contractors aboard the plane. Two Afghan civilians were also reportedly killed on the ground.
The contractors were reportedly on a NATO-led mission to train Afghan security forces.
