Seven Killed in Chopper Crash, Insider Attack
By Harold Hutchison
Seven American troops were killed during operations in Afghanistan. The deaths came in two separate incidents – one of them a “green on blue” attack in Wardak province.
The helicopter crash in Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan left five American troops dead. ISAF did not identify the type of helicopter in its announcement of the tragedy.
The insider attack that killed two Americans was carried out in Wardak province. A report from VOA news stated that the attack also killed Afghan soldiers as well as the two Americans.
