UK Chinook damaged in Afghanistan


Chinooks form the backbone of the UK's helicopter fleet in Afghanistan
A British Chinook helicopter has been deliberately destroyed after being badly damaged in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has said.
The aircraft suffered what officials have called a "hard landing", while on operations near Sangin, Helmand province, on Sunday morning.
The Chinook suffered damage to the undercarriage, nose and front door, the MoD added.
The four crew and 15 soldiers from the 2 Rifles battlegroup were unharmed.
The Chinook had been carrying the troops to a site six miles (10km) east of Sangin at 0530 on Sunday.
