KABUL (AP) - Helicopter crashes in Afghanistan, including a midair collision, have killed 14 Americans, including three civilians.
A U.S. statement says seven U.S. troops and three U.S. civilians working for the government died when their helicopter went down in western Afghanistan. Twelve Americans and 14 Afghans were injured.
Also today, two U.S. helicopters collided in southern Afghanistan, killing four American troops and wounding two others.
In the capital, Kabul, it's a second day of demonstrations by university students. They're protesting the alleged desecration of the Muslim holy book by U.S. troops. Both U.S. and Afghan authorities have denied that any desecration took place.
