A helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan has taken the lives of nine service members from the US and Afghanistan.
Others were injured in the crash which occurred on Tuesday.
NATO has said the enemy were not active in the area when the helicopter went down, so the crash will be fully investigated for other causes.
Separately, NATO has stated that Afghan and coalition forces captured a Taliban commander and killed two Taliban insurgents on Tuesday after a raid on enemy buildings in northern Baghlan province.
The captured commander has been linked to several attacks during Saturday’s elections in Afghanistan.
