THE helicopter crash in Afghanistan, which killed five army personnel, four of whom were from RAF Odiham, is believed to have been a "tragic accident". A statement from the Ministry of Defence has dispelled claims made by the Taliban that insugents had shot down the helicopter. The BBC has reported that the crash, which happened yesterday, may have been caused by "technical problems".
