Coalition chopper makes emergency landing

Coalition chopper makes emergency landing

Aug 06, 2011 - 14:55

KHOST CITY (PANinfo-icon): A coalition helicopter made an emergency landing in the Musakhel district of southeastern Khost province on Saturday, the International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) said.

It appeared the emergency landing was forced by a technical problem, the NATOinfo-icon-led force's media office said. Crewmembers were rescued and the incident caused no casualties, the alliance added.

But the Talibaninfo-icon claimed shooting down the aircraft with a rocket. The group's spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, without giving specific casualty figures, said all those on board were killed.

Elsewhere in the country, an ISAF helicopter was shot down in central Maidan Wardak province, killing 31 US Special Forces and seven Afghan National Army (ANA) soldiers. The incident took place Friday night in the Syedabad district, said the governor’s spokesman, Shahidullah Shahid.
