Afghan police: ISAF helicopter crashes in Kabul, kills 5

A NATO-led International Security Assistance Force helicopter crashed Friday in Afghanistan's capital city of Kabul, killing five people, an Afghan police chief said.

ISAF confirmed the helicopter "went down" but said the cause of the accident was unknown. "There was no report of insurgent activity in the area," said Capt. David Yaryar, an ISAF spokesman.

    We can't help but wonder, when helicopters crash with no enemy near, was the enemy near the chopper earlier, wearing the uniform of one we're traing to take over whem we leave Afghanistan?
