US-led forces in Afghanistan have confirmed that one of their helicopters has crashed in the southeastern province of Paktia.

A statement released Monday by NATO says the helicopter crashed in the Jaji Meydan district, but refrains from revealing the nationalities of the soldiers injured in the incident, a Press TV correspondent reported Monday.

According to the statement, nobody has been killed in the incident.

Meanwhile, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid has claimed responsibility for an attack against the chopper, saying that all the troops in the helicopter were killed after it was shot down.

Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, another Taliban spokesman, said another helicopter belonging to the US-led forces, was downed in Howz-e-Madad district in Kandahar province, killing seven foreign soldiers.

NATO has not yet confirmed the Taliban’s claim.
