PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): A US forces helicopter made an emergency landing in the capital of central Logar province on Monday.

Logar governor’s spokesman, Salim Saleh, told Pajhwok Afghan News the US helicopter made emergency landing in Babos area on the outskirts of Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, due to a technical fault.

“The chopper and the personnel on-board are safe. The copter flew after an hour of delay.”

However, a resident of Babos area, Ahmadullah, said the US helicopter was still in the area.

“The helicopter is still on the land and two other aircrafts are hovering over it. We don’t know why the chopper landed here.”

On the other hand, Talibaninfo-icon spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, claimed the chopper had been shot down by fighters. He claimed all on-board were killed in the incident.

There has been so far no word from US forces in this regard.

Babos is located eight kilomteres north of Pul-i-Alam and is currently controlled by insurgents.
