A Polish Mi-24 helicopter crash landed in Afghanistan, Sunday, after it was returning from combat operations to the Warrior base in Ghazni in the south east of the country.


None of the four troops on board were injured, says a statement from Polish command and the helicopter was only slightly damaged.

According to an initial investigation it was concluded that strong side winds were responsible for the accident.

Poland has around 2,500 troops in Afghanistan as part of the multinational ISAF mission. (pg)
