U.S. helicopter crashed in Iraq

A U.S. Apache helicopter crashed Friday in northern Iraq, injuring two U.S. troops, the military said.

U.S. forces were evacuating the two injured service members in the area of Kirkuk, 290 kilometers (180 miles) north of Baghdad, said Staff Sgt. Duane Brown, a spokesman for the 42nd Infantry Division. He did not disclose the extent of the injuries.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, Brown was quoted as saying by AP.
