WASHINGTON - A US military helicopter went down in poor weather in Afghanistan on Thursday, the military said, in a crash that officials believed may have killed all four people onboard.

A US defense official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Black Hawk helicopter crashed in the Regional Command-Southwest area, which includes the traditional Taliban stronghold of Helmand province. Poor weather appeared to have been the cause of the crash.

Another official said all four people aboard the helicopter were feared dead.
