US soldier killed in Afghan helicopter crash

US soldier killed in Afghan helicopter crashA US soldier died after the helicopter they were in crashed in Afghanistan, foreign forces said Saturday, denying Taliban claims that it had shot down the aircraft. Six other US crew members were injured in the accident late Friday in Logar province, south of Kabul, NATO’s Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan said in a statement. The death brought the number of US soldiers killed in action in Afghanistan — where they are supposed to be in a non-combat role — so far this year to 11, two above the tally for the whole of 2016.
