U2 lost in 'south-west Asia'

An American U2 spy plane has crashed at an undisclosed location according to US military sources. They will only say that it was on a mission over Afghanistan and that it crashed in 'south-west Asia', a term which can also cover the middle-east. The pilot was killed when the plane crashed sometime between Tuesday and early Wednesday on return to its base in the United Arab Emirates. "The specific location is not releasable due to host nation sensitivities," U.S. Air Force Capt. David Small, a Central Command spokesman, said in an e-mail, USA Today reported.
