US says kills Taliban who shot down US chopper

Coalition forces in occupied Afghanistan have killed the Taliban insurgents responsible for shooting down a U.S. helicopter last weekend but not the insurgent leader initially sought in the operation, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan said on Wednesday.

"We dealt with them in a kinetic strike," General John Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, told reporters at the Pentagon.

The crash, which killed 30 Americans and eight Afghans, was the single deadliest incident involving U.S. forces since the West invasion in Afghanistan began nearly a decade ago.
