Helicopter crash kills two Britons in Afghanistan

KABUL – Two British Royal Air Force personnel died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan on Sunday, the defence ministry said in a statement.

The helicopter crashed while landing at the headquarters of the Resolute Support international NATO coalition in the Afghan capital Kabul. “The incident is currently under investigation but we can confirm that it was an accident and not the result of insurgent activity,” the defence ministry said in a statement.

Those killed were from the 230 and 33 Squadrons of the Royal Air Force, the statement added.
