An International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) helicopter crashed in south Afghanistan on Thursday, a press release from the NATO-led ISAF said on Friday.

The helicopter crashed in Zabul province, some 340 km south of Afghan capital Kabul.

"The landing site has been secured and all personnel are accounted for. There are no casualties reported," said the press release, "the cause of the crash is under investigation."

No more details of the helicopter crash was offered in the press release.

However, most of the ISAF based in Zabul province is from the United States.

So far, there is no report from the Taliban militants who are active in south Afghanistan, or other militant groups, to claim the responsiblility for the case.
