Four people have been killed in an Army helicopter crash in Afghanistan’s Farah province, officials said on Saturday.

“An Army helicopter flying from Herat province to the neighbouring Farah province on Friday night crashed in Khak-e-Safid district, leaving four dead on board,” provincial government spokesman Nasir Mehri was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

Blaming technical problem for the crash, the official said that two out of the four victims were the pilot and co-pilot.

This was the second helicopter crash over the past two weeks in Afghanistan. Previously, another chopper crashed in the Balkh province, leaving three dead.
