KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — NATO says one of its helicopters made a "precautionary" landing after coming under small arms fire in southern Afghanistan.
The alliance says the CH-47 helicopter was conducting a medical evacuation and had one patient on board in Friday's incident.
It says in a statement that shortly after the landing, another military helicopter arrived and took the patient, passengers and crew to a nearby NATO facility. The statement does not report any casualties suffered as a result of the helicopter incident.
NATO says the landing site has been secured and efforts are under way to recover the helicopter. No other details were released.
