Four Tajik Citizens Killed In Afghanistan Crash

  • RFE/RL's Tajik Service

A transport helicopter has crashed in southern Afghanistan, killing all four people onboard.

The incident occurred on February 11 in Zabul Province.

Deputy Provincial Governor Mohammad Jon Rasolyar told RFE/RL that the four dead -- three men and one woman -- were citizens from Tajikistan who were working for Supreme Food, a logistics company under contract to NATO.

He said the helicopter crashed due to bad weather and a "technical problem."

Last year, two Tajik pilots of the Pamir Air company died in a plane crash in Afghanistan.
