At least 12 people have died after a Turkish helicopter crashed outside the Afghan capital, Kabul.

News agencies reported that 10 Turkish soldiers and two civilians were killed.

Turkey has more than 1,800 soldiers in Afghanistan, but their mission is limited to patrols, rather than combat operations.
