Nine killed as helicopter crashes in Afghanistan


At least nine people were killed when a military helicopter crashed in central Afghanistan, the defence ministry said Thursday. 

The crash happened on Wednesday night in a volatile district in Wardak province, where Afghan forces and local militias have bitterly fought. 

“As a result of the incident, four crew members and five security forces” were killed, the MoD said in a statement. 

“The ministry of defense is investigating the cause of the crash.”

Mohibullah Sharifi, the spokesman for the Wardak provincial governor, confirmed the helicopter crash, but did not provide further details.
