A defense ministry statement says that the crash on Wednesday by the MI-17 was caused by a technical problem. The helicopter was on a rescue mission after a vehicle carrying civilians plunged into a river near the city of Feroz Koh, the provincial capital of Ghor. It says 12 passengers were injured in the crash. It was not clear how many people were on board. Images on social media show dozens gathered at the site to try to help the survivors.
