A NATO helicopter crashed on Monday in southern Afghanistan, injuring 14 people, the international force said.

Elsewhere in the south, a service member was killed in a bomb strike, NATO said, without providing further details.

The coalition said no one is reported to have been killed in the helicopter crash and that all personnel on board were evacuated to nearby medical facilities.

Jilani Farah, deputy police chief in Zabul province where the crash occurred, said 14 people were injured, including international service members, three Afghan soldiers and one Afghan policeman. NATO confirmed that 14 people were injured in the crash, and said that none of them sustained life—threatening injuries.

The Taliban have posted a message on their Web site claiming responsibility for the crash in Atghar district.

NATO said the crash was still being investigated, but that there was no indication that insurgents shot down the aircraft.
