Taliban insurgents have seized eight Turks and an Afghan from a civilian helicopter which made an emergency landing in eastern Afghanistan, officials said Monday.
The incident happened after the Turkish helicopter landed on Sunday evening, said Rais Khan Sadeq, deputy police chief of Logar province, south of Kabul.
"Security forces found the helicopter but the nine people were not in it. They are taken by the Taliban," Sadeq told AFP.
Revising earlier information, he said the group is made up of eight Turks and one Afghan.
