Five Americans killed in helicopter crash in Afghanistan

The Pentagon confirms that five U.S. military personnel were killed in a helicopter crash in southern Afghanistan Monday. Helicopter crashes are not uncommon in Afghanistan and the Taliban and others often claim to have shot them down. Brigadier General Gunter Katz of ISAF says an investigation is underway.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel left Afghanistan earlier on Monday.
