A cargo plane chartered by FedEx crashed west of Baghdad after reporting a malfunction, the U.S. military said. It ruled out hostile fire and said the crew was presumed dead.

The Russian-made AN-12 plane with up to seven crew members, none of whom was American, was flying from Al Asad air base in Iraq to Baghdad's international airport when it went down south of Fallouja, the military said.
