NEWSDAY: BETHLEHEM, N.Y. (AP) _ A 25-year-old soldier was killed in Iraq Saturday when the helicopter he was piloting crashed, according to a published report.

Capt. Timothy Moshier of Bethlehem was one of two soldiers killed when his Apache helicopter crashed in southwest Baghdad around 9:30 a.m., a friend of Moshier's family told Albany Times Union.

According to the Pentagon, the cause of the crash was still unclear. The newspaper cited a statement from the military that said the cause could have been "possible hostile fire."

Moshier, who graduated from Bethlehem High in 1998 before entering West Point, was living in Texas. He leaves behind a wife, Katherine, and a 10-month-old daughter, Natalie.

Bethlehem is 15 miles southwest of Albany.
