In scenes reminiscent of the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, Iraqis used to bring a sledgehammer to the marble base beneath the statue of Saddam.

The F / A-18 and KC-130 Hercules refueling aircraft were launched from the Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and regularly conducted training when there was "a mishap" Marine Corps said.

The Marine Corps did not go into the nature of the incident. A US official who spoke on condition of anonymity said that this happened during a refueling process.

Officers who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity were not sure how the mishap happened, but no one suspected misconduct. An investigation has begun.

The Marine Corps suggested that Japanese search and rescue aircraft take the lead on the rescue mission.

"We are grateful for the efforts of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Army as they responded immediately to the search and search operation rescue operation," it said.
