KABUL (Pajhwok): Five foreigners have been wounded after their helicopter crashed inside the Marshal Fahim National Defence University in Kabul, an official confirmed on Monday.

The helicopter crashed soon after take-off, wounding five foreign contractors. Gen. Waziri had no information about the identities of the injured.
