95 US soldiers killed in Afghanistan: Taleban

Afghanistan's Taleban regime on Monday claimed that its forces have killed 95 American soldiers since the launch of the US-led military campaign a month ago.

"The death toll of US soldiers in this war has now approximately reached 95," the Taleban embassy in Pakistan said in a statement.

The US has not confirmed the death of a single American soldier in combat operations in Afghanistan.

The Pentagon said only one helicopter had crashed in severe weather, and that all the crew members had been rescued before an air strike was ordered to destroy the wreckage.

"The real tragedy with the US soldiers and their families occurred when the US heavily bombed the wreckage of their own helicopters," the Taleban said.

The Pentagon has said it routinely destroys aircraft downed in hostile territory to prevent the equipment on board from falling into enemy hands.
