The US military says a helicopter crash has killed 10 Americans in western Afghanistan after an earlier crash claimed lives of four US soldiers.

In the second crash on Monday, seven US troopers and three US civilians working for the government died when their helicopter went down.

The helicopter collapsed during an operation by Afghan and international forces in which a dozen militants were also killed, the military said in a statement.

In a similar incident on Monday, four US soldiers were killed and two others were injured after two US helicopters collided in southern Afghanistan.
