The Associated Press is reporting that the Taliban is claiming that insurgents are responsible for the attack.
ISAF said three were U.S. Forces-Afghanistan service members. The others include four ISAF service members, but it is not clear what their nationalities are.
Three members of the Afghan National Security Forces and an Afghan civilian interpreter also died. The cause of the crash is under investigation, ISAF said in a news release.

Fox news pulled early BREAKING NEWS banner as I was posting...but others sources reporting early.
My son-in-law is deploying to Afghanistan in a few week. : (
I wish him a safe deployment and a speedy safe return.
I will keep him in my prayers, Josa.
UPDATE: Sadly 7 US troops
I have one out “there” on a destroyer. No idea where but certainly not as dangerous as Afghanistan. I wish we were OUT OF THAT HELLHOLE!
May the good Lord watch over him, protect him and keep him safe throughout his travels. God bless him and our great military. To be in this mess over there, running a military on “disgusting rules of engagement”... is heartbreaking. War is H3!! and why our military can’t fight a war like they’re supposed to is deplorable.
My 3 year old grandson’s dad, deployed there two days ago. Prayers for all.
