Allied forces have suffered a day of heavy
losses in Afghanistan in a helicopter crash that killed 6 U.S.
The Marines died after their CH 53 helicopter
crashed in Helmand province, a U.S. military official said. The
NATO-led force reported no enemy activity in the area, but the
Taliban claimed credit for bringing down the copter.
"We are still in the process of gathering
more information on the incident," an official told Reuters.
This story is still developing.
