    US helicopter crash near Baghdad kills 2

    BAGHDAD (AP) — A U.S. military helicopter crashed Tuesday southeast of Baghdad, killing two soldiers and injuring 12, the U.S. military said.

    Initial reports indicated the crash was not due to hostile fire, the military said.

    The statement also did not specify the type of helicopter or the nationalities of the victims.

    The crash occurred near Salman Pak on the outskirts of the capital, a military statement said.

    “An investigation will be conducted to determine the cause of the incident,” the statement said. “However, initial reports indicate the crash was not the result of enemy fire.”
