KABUL - Eleven people have been killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan, including three US soldiers and four other foreign troops, the NATO-led coalition force in the country said on Thursday.

"The crash resulted in the deaths of four International Security Assistance Force service members, three United States Forces-Afghanistan service members, three members of the Afghan National Security Forces, and one Afghan civilian interpreter," ISAF said in a statement.

ISAF said the cause of the crash, which Afghan authorities said was in the Shah Wali Kot district of southern Kandahar province, was under investigation.
