June 19, 2008|From the Associated Press

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN — The U.S. military said Wednesday that four helicopter engines worth $13 million are missing in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region.

U.S. spokeswoman Lt. Col. Rumi Nielson-Green said the helicopters were being shipped overland from the U.S. base in Bagram, Afghanistan, to a seaport for shipment back to Ft. Bragg, N.C.

Nielson-Green said the parts went missing sometime before May.

She said the engines were being shipped by a Pakistani trucking company, but it is unclear where they disappeared.

The United States is not disclosing what kind of engines they were.
