KHOST CITY (PANinfo-icon): Two pilots were killed in a helicopter crash in southeastern Khost province on Sunday, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) said.

In line with its policy, the alliance neither gave the nationalities of the servicemembers nor the exact location of the crash site. However, local officials said the chopper went down before noon in Sabari district due to a technical fault. 

The Talibaninfo-icon claimed shooting down the helicopter in the Machi area, with rebel spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid saying that soldiers on board were killed. He gave no specific casualty figure.
