ROME (AP) - News agencies in Italy report a U.S. military helicopter has crashed and it's feared at least five people have been killed.

Italy's ANSA news agency says the chopper may have been a Black Hawk and was carrying about 10 people when it crashed in the countryside in northern Italy.

A spokesman for the U.S. Air Base at Aviano (ah-vee-AH'-noh) says the base is looking into the reports.
