    • 5 American troops killed in Afghanistan helicopter crash, US official says Published March 12, 2013
    Associated Press
    KABUL, Afghanistan – A helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan has killed five American service members, officials said Tuesday.
    Monday night's crash brought the total number of U.S. troops killed that day to seven, making it the deadliest day for U.S. forces so far this year. Two U.S. special operations forces were gunned down hours earlier in an insider attack by an Afghan policeman in eastern Afghanistan.
    The NATO military coalition said in a statement that "initial reports" showed no enemy activity in the area at the time. The cause of the crash is under investigation, the statement said.
    A U.S. official said all five of the dead were American. The official said the helicopter went down outside Kandahar city, the capital of Kandahar province. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the information had not been formally released.
