Red signal smoke is released as US soldiers stand near flag-draped stretchers bearing the remains of two comrades near the scene of a helicopter crash in the Pachir Wa Agam district of Nangarhar province on April 9, 2013. 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.
