Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Five U.S. service members were killed when a helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan, a U.S. official said early Tuesday.
The chopper went down Monday in the Daman district of southern Kandahar during a rain storm, said Jawid Faisal, a government spokesman for the province.
There was no enemy activity in the area at the time of the incident, according to a statement by the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).
The U.S. official, who did not want to be identified, did not offer additional information about the victims.

It is time for us to leave.
There is NOTHING to be gained by continuing to operate under this White House.
I enlisted during ‘nam, and have NEVER taken such a position in the past.
Prayers for these servicemen and their families.
Not that it ever mattered to truly great men like these . ...but THESE people and their family members are the FIRST TARGETS of Obama’s budget cuts. These people, who sacrifice their futures, and their very lives for us.
We are ONE majorly F’D UP country.
We should have learned from Britain from 1840 and 1870 there is no value to the west being in the middle east or the middle east being allowed in the est.
Please call your Senators and Comgressmen demand they defund the Afghan War now!
This hellhole is not worth one more American dollar.
Make the call. please.
hussein very encouraged.
Where is “Code Pink” that was soooooo active when G.W. was in the Whitey House? Now, they seemed to have disappeared. Is the issue of American Military dying in Afghanistan only a Republican issue with Code Pink? I think so.
I hate it that I have become so suspicious, but my first thought was that Obamugabe managed to knock off yet more of our brave fighting men so that they can be replaced by women and pansies.
Who he can also have murdered.
Yes, he could also have the replacements murdered, but my point is that he wants the capable and brave fighting men to be replaced by those who cannot defend our nation.
Heck, the fact that Americans elected and RE-ELECTED an African communist as president makes me wonder if America is even worth defending anymore.
And we just cut student aid to veterans and servicepersons... in the same Congress that just ensured in-state tuition and student aid for illegals.
There is not much subtlety in the Obama Administration when it comes to showing preferences.
What’s tragic is, we should STAY in Afghanistan and keep the pressure on the terrorists and their training camps. HOWEVER (and that’s a big ‘however’), with a President sympathetic to the terrorist’s cause, WE SHOULD LEAVE because 0bama’s traitorous ROE will only get more of us killed.
Well this must mean Obama won’t be getting many peace awards this year. Now sadly if this were five Afgooni’s he’d be all over it like sh*t on sharia.
Prayers for our brave nearly forgotten soldiers in preposterous conditions and under almost as many threats when they come home as on the battlefield.
May the Lord bless them. Or is anyone offended I used a prayer to God? is that still acceptable without jail time or some atheist slandering my faith?
