KABUL, Afghanistan — A NATO helicopter was shot down in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday, killing four troops, the alliance said.

The helicopter was brought down by hostile fire in volatile Helmand province, NATO said in a statement. It gave no other details.

Taliban spokesman Qari Yousef Ahmadi claimed responsibility on behalf of the insurgents, saying terrorists had shot down the helicopter with two rockets.

Both US and British troops are operating in Helmand, part of a band of provinces across southern Afghanistan that are the Taliban's heartland.
