NATO Helicopter Crashes in Eastern Afghanistan

A helicopter from the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) has crashed in eastern Afghanistan, but the ISAF said all passengers and crew members were safe.

The incident occurred before dawn on July 25 in Kunar Province's remote mountainous Chapa Dara district. An ISAF spokesman said the cause of the crash is being investigated and that ISAF has not ruled out the possibility the helicopter was shot down by insurgent fire.

Taliban insurgents claimed they had shot the craft down.
