(KABUL, Afghanistan) -- Twelve Turkish soldiers and two Afghan civilians were killed Friday when a NATO helicopter carrying Turkish troops crashed in eastern Afghanistan.
The aircraft came down on a civilian home in the Bagrami District of Kabul Province. The two killed Afghans were inside the house when it happened.
The helicopter, which was on a NATO mission and belonged to International Security Assistance Force RC-C, crashed as it was attempting to make an emergency landing, the Turkish foreign minister said.
The cause of the crash is not yet known, but ISAF says there was no insurgent activity in the area at the time.
