The U.S.-led military coalition says seven people died when a civilian cargo aircraft crashed at Bagram Air Field, north of the Afghan capital.

In a statement, the coalition confirmed that all seven civilian crew members were killed in Monday's crash.

The Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the crash. But the coalition denied that, saying in a statement to The Associated Press that the militant group's statement was false.

The coalition said there was no militant activity during the time of the crash.

The coalition said the cause of the accident is being investigated.
