KABUL: NATO says a helicopter with the international force has crashed in southern Afghanistan.
The military said Monday that initial reports are that there were no fatalities, but Jilani Farah, deputy police chief in Zabul province where the crash occurred, says 14 people were injured, including international and Afghan troops.
NATO says all personnel on board were evacuated to nearby medical facilities. The military says the cause of the crash is under investigation, but there is no indication that insurgents shot down the aircraft.
