Taliban Claim They Downed US Helicopter in Afghanistan
iStockphoto/Thinkstock(KABUL, Afghanistan) -- An American forces helicopter crashed in eastern Afghanistan Tuesday. It's the second time this month a U.S. chopper has gone down.
NATO officials say no one on board was killed in what they're calling a "forced landing."
The Taliban has claimed responsibility for the crash, saying it was a Chinook helicopter that was shot down by one of its fighters in Logar province.
Tuesday's incident is the second time this month a coalition helicopter has crashed. Just two weeks ago, 11 troops -- including four Navy SEALs -- were killed when their Black Hawk helicopter was shot down just outside of Kandahar.
