Black Hawk Down in afghanistan killing at-least 7 american soldier

KABUL, Afghanistan — at-least Seven American soldiers and three Afghan soldiers and an interpreter were killed after daybreak on Thursday when their Black Hawk helicopter crashed in Kandahar Province in southern Afghanistan, the American-led military command here said.

Major Crighton said. But he added that “it is far too early in the investigation to make any definitive statement about what caused the accident.” He said everyone on board the helicopter was killed, and he confirmed that the crash occurred in Kandahar Province. But he declined to specify the precise location, saying that recovery and investigative operations may still be under way.

Jawed Faisal, a spokesman for the governor of Kandahar Province, said the helicopter crashed in the Chinalto area of Shah Wali Kot .

The Taliban had also claimed that its fighters in the Shah Wali Kot district had shot down a helicopter on Wednesday with a rocket-propelled grenade, killing 33 American troops who were flying overhead in support of a night raid on houses in the area, according to a translation of a Taliban statement by the SITE Intelligence Group.

Yet that statement was issued well before the time that both the Kandahar governor’s spokesman and the American-led military command said the crash occurred, and Major Crighton denied that any NATO helicopter had crashed on Wednesday.
