ISAF helicopter crashes in Khost
As a result of the crash that took place at around 12pm, the aircraft caught fire, residents told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The statement added: “There were no fatalities and all those aboard the aircraft were recovered and taken to an ISAF facility.” But the statement did not reveal further details.
Security threats have increased in Khost recently. Two weeks ago, a group attack was carried out on a foreign troop base, inflicting casualties on about 20 civilians. Over 100 foreign troops were injured.
On Wednesday, 25 people, including three American soldiers, were killed after a suicide bomber blew up himself near international soldiers.
