BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. Army says a helicopter has crashed in southwestern Baghdad.

Military officials say there's no word on the fate of the crew.

A spokesman says the military doesn't believe the helicopter was hit by hostile fire.

The OH-58 Kiowa Helicopter usually carries a crew of three, and is unlikely to have a large number of passengers.
