All 16 people aboard a helicopter, including several foreigners, were killed in Wednesday's crash in rugged mountain terrain in southeastern Afghanistan, US-led coalition forces said.

The cause of the crash was not known, but it took place in an area where insurgents are active. At least two coalition soldiers were killed, a forces spokesman said on Thursday.
