The international military coalition in Afghanistan says two international service members have been killed in a helicopter crash in the country's south.
NATO forces said in a statement that they had no reports of enemy activity in the area where the helicopter crashed Thursday.
The statement does not provide further details on the incident nor the nationality of the dead. At least 54 international service members have been killed in Afghanistan so far this month.
