    Tokyo (CNN) A US military aircraft has crashed off the southern Japanese island of Okinawa, according to a Japanese coast guard official.

    The fighter jet departed the Kadena US airbase and crashed off the east coast of Okinawa, according to the official.

    The Japanese coast guard has deployed rescue teams.

    Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture, is home to a large US military presence.
