Two hurt as Nato helicopter crash lands in Afghanistan

A helicopter carrying Turkish soldiers has crash landed in Afghanistan, injuring at least two of its occupants, the Turkish military says.

The aircraft came down near the town of Wardak, south of the capital, Kabul. One report said the aircraft had technical problems while landing.

Nato said there had been no fatalities and there were "no indications enemy activity caused the incident".

Some 1,800 Turkish troops serve in the Nato-led force in Afghanistan.
