Helicopter Crash Afghanistan 2009?

What a sad day for our soldiers in Afghanistan. Three helicopters crashed today in Afghanistan, two apparently colliding mid-air and another following a deadly raid on suspected drug traffickers.
Today October 26, 2009 is marked as one of the deadliest days for U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
How many people were killed? Is there a video of the helicopter crash?

Fourteen Americans have died in Afghanistan in a bloody night for the US, when one helicopter came down under heavy fire and two more collided in mid air.

Seven soldiers and three civilians were killed in the first incident, moments after their helicopter took off after extracting soldiers from a daring raid against one of the region's most wanted drugs smugglers.

A military spokesman confirmed that the US civilians were with "other government agencies".

Elite US troops had launched a pre-dawn, airborne assault against a compound in western Afghanistan, believed to harbour insurgents linked to the multi-billion dollar opium trade.
