Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

KABUL — Two U.S. ser­vice mem­bers were killed in a heli­copter crash in Hel­mand prov­ince, the third fa­tal chop­per crash in south­ern Afghanistan in less than two months. Tal­iban forces claimed to have shot down the air­craft. The NATO force said an in­ves­ti­ga­tion was un­der way but that hos­tile fire couldn’t be ruled out. The lat­est As­so­ci­ated Press tally lists at least 1,113 U.S. troops deaths in the Afghan war, in­clud­ing at least 883 con­sid­ered com­bat deaths by the Pen­tagon.
