Two Australian Troops Killed In Afghanistan Helicopter Crash
Thursday, August 30, 2012
While the cause of the crash is under investigation, the DoD reports:
There was no enemy activity in the area at the time of the crash.
Three other Australians died Wednesday in an "insider" shooting by an assailant in an Afghan military uniform -- an unusually large loss of life in a compressed period of time for a relatively small troop contingent.
The names of those killed haven't yet been released.
