Two US pilots were killed when their military helicopter crashed in west Baghdad on Monday evening, the military said on Tuesday.

"There was no hostile fire involved," the military said in a statement.

The military did not immediately identify the helicopter type, or give details on the cause of the crash.

This incident brings the US military death toll since the start of the war in Iraq to at least 2,167, according to an agency count based on Pentagon figures.
