Two pilots killed in crash of an Afghan military helicopter

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Two pilots were killed on Wednesday when their Mi-35 helicopter crashed in Farah, western Afghanistan, as a result of a technical failure, the Afghan Defense Ministry said.

The ministry added in a statement that the stricken plane was transporting supplies to Afghan security forces in the region.

In a separate incident, the ministry said that a Mi-17 helicopter had “made an emergency landing” in the eastern province of Paktia due to a technical failure, but added that no one was injured in the accident.

A local police spokesman said the Mi-17 plane had crashed after takeoff and that 10 people were injured, some of them in critical condition.
