KABUL, Afghanistan — NATO on Friday said an alliance helicopter crew has killed more than 20 insurgents in southern Afghanistan after the men fired on the aircraft.

The statement said a group of fighters shot at the helicopter with small arms and machine guns before the crew returned fire.

It says a ground team found 20 bombs, firearms and several vehicles.

NATO said initial reports show there were no civilian casualties during Thursday's fighting in the Spin Boldak district of Kandahar province.
