Kabul - Six soldiers from the US-led NATO mission fighting Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan were killed in a aircraft crash on Tuesday, NATO officials said, adding it was not a suspected militant strike.

“Six International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) service members died following an aircraft crash in southern Afghanistan today,” an ISAF statement said, declining to give the nationalities of the victims.
