U.S. Black Hawk helicopters arrive to the scene after a NATO helicopter crashed in a field killing two American service members, near Gerakhel, eastern Afghanistan, on April 9.

Two American service members were killed in a helicopter crash Tuesday in eastern Afghanistan, the military said.

A spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force said Tuesday that there was no enemy activity in the area when the crash occurred and that the cause was under investigation.

The helicopter went down in the Pachir Agam district of Nangarhar province, Reuters quoted Ahmad Zia Abdulzai, a spokesman for the governor's office, as saying.
