AP-AFGHANISTAN UPDATE


Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 7:40 PM EDT
KABUL, Afghanistan


NATO is investigating what led to the crash of a British helicopter in southern Afghanistan on Saturday that killed five coalition troops.

It was the single deadliest day this year for foreign forces as they prepare to withdraw from the country.

The British defense ministry has confirmed that all five of the dead were British. Maj. Gen. Richard Felton, commander of the Joint Helicopter Command, says the crash appears to be "a tragic accident."

A Taliban spokesman claimed that insurgents shot down the helicopter. But NATO says it has no reports of enemy activity in the area.

Saturday's deaths bring to seven the number of international troops killed this month. So far this year, 23 have been killed, according to an Associated Press count.

Also today, an official identified the two Americans who were killed along with Chicago pediatrician Jerry Umanos at a Kabul hospital on Thursday. A Kabul University vice chancellor says John Gabel and his visiting father were shot to death by a security guard. Gabel worked for the U.S.-based charity Morning Star Development and ran a health clinic at Kabul university.
