NATO chopper crash in eastern Afghanistan kills 2
Source: LAT

KABUL, Afghanistan
A NATO helicopter crashed Sunday in eastern Afghanistan, killing two service members in the third such fatal incident in the past three weeks, Western military officials said.

The Taliban movement claimed responsibility, saying it had downed a Western chopper in the Sabari district of Khost province, near the Pakistan border. However, the insurgents routinely claim to have shot down any NATO aircraft that crashes. Military officials said the cause of the crash was under investigation.

NATO's International Security Force did not release the nationalities or identities of the two killed, in keeping with usual practice. Most of the troops serving in Afghanistan's east are Americans.

Earlier in the day, the Western military announced the death of another service member, in the country's south.
