5 NATO Troops Killed In Afghanistan
In the longest war in American history, 5 NATO troops died in a helicopter crash in the deadliest day of the year.
The Taliban claimed to have shot down the helicopter, which an Afghan official said crashed in the southern province of Kandahar.
The coalition said it was investigating the circumstances of the crash but gave no other information in a brief statement. It did not release the nationalities of those killed, citing its policy that home countries should identify their dead.
