A NATO helicopter crashed in eastern Afghanistan on Tuesday killing two US troops, officials said, adding there was no insurgent activity in the area at the time of the incident. Taliban militants said they had shot down the helicopter, but the group often makes exaggerated claims of success on the battlefield against NATO forces and the US-backed government.
