A helicopter of U.S.-led troops was shot down by small-arms fire to the south of the Afghan capital on Wednesday, but there were no serious injuries to the people on board, the U.S. military said.
The pilots landed the aircraft safely and evacuated all personnel before it caught fire in the Kharwar district of Logar province.
"There were no serious injuries to the crew or passengers," the military said in a statement.
It did not give further details of the incident in Logar where Taliban are known to be active.
