2 Afghans killed in copter crash; American dies
The U.S. military said Saturday that a service member has been killed in Afghanistan, while in a separate incident two Afghan soldiers died when their helicopter crashed.
The brief U.S. military statement did not provide further details on the soldier’s identity or the time or place of death.
The two Afghan soldiers died and two others injured Saturday when their helicopter made an “emergency landing” in the southern Kandahar province due to a technical problem, a Defense Ministry spokesman said.
The Taliban claim to have shot the helicopter down.
