Nato helicopter crashes in southern Afghanistan

KANDAHAR: A Nato helicopter crashed in troubled southern Afghanistan on Monday, wounding 14 people on board in the second such incident in a week, police and the military said.

Deputy provincial police chief Ghulam Jailani Farahi said the chopper came down in the Atghar district of Zabul province bordering Kandahar, which is the focus of a major US-led offensive against the Taliban.

Nato’s International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) said, “According to initial reports, there were no fatalities in the incident, and all personnel on board have been evacuated to nearby ISAF medical treatment facilities.”
