Footage has emerged showing the burning wreckage of an alleged US military plane that crashed in Taliban-controlled territory in Afghanistan.

In the video, the destroyed jet bears the logos of the US Air Force and Air Combat Command.

Without providing any evidence, the Taliban claims it shot down the aircraft and everyone on board, including CIA officers , was killed.

The US Department of Defense has not yet commented, but is understood to be investigating reports that a military plane had crashed.

Local media said it was a foreign military plane that resembled a Bombardier E – A, a type of surveillance aircraft the US Department of Defense has used in Afghanistan.

It is claimed that everyone on board was killed when the jet went down in the snow-covered Deh Yak, a remote and mountainous district south -west of Kabul, at about 1. pm local time on Monday.

However the exact figure of casualties is not yet clear.

Rescuers and investigators were unable to access the scene in Ghazni province because it was under Taliban control.

Ghazni Governor Wahidullah Kalimzai told local media that the bodies of two pilots had been recovered, the aircraft was completely burnt and it was foreign.
