Nine foreign troops have been killed in a helicopter crash in northwestern Afghanistan, the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) has said.
US defence officials told Reuters that all of the Nato troops killed in Tuesday's crash were Americans.
Four others were also injured, including two Nato troops, an Afghan soldier and a US civilian.
The Taliban claimed to have shot down the helicopter, but Nato said there were "no reports of enemy fire in the area".
At least 529 foreign troops have been killed so far this year in Afghanistan.
