NATO says one of its aircraft has crashed in eastern Afghanistan. A local Afghan official says it was a helicopter that came down because of technical problems.
A local Taliban leader, who was accused of shooting down a NATO CH-47 Chinook helicopter last year, was killed in Afghanistan`s eastern province of Kunar, the NATO- led coalition forces confirmed on Wednesday.
The US-led coalition said in a statement it was investigating the cause of the hard landing.
US sources say most of the 31 Americans killed were from the Navy Seal unit which killed Osama Bin Laden.
Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed the group`s insurgents shot the helicopter down.
A US aircraft crashed in Afghanistan, killing three American troops and a civilian in the south where a nearly nine-year Taliban insurgency has been concentrated, the military said on Friday.
