KABUL (AP) - NATO says one of its helicopters has crashed in western Afghanistan, injuring two troops serving with the U.S.-led military coalition.

No other information was disclosed about Wednesday's crash in the relatively peaceful west. The crash is under investigation.

Separately, NATO reported that a service member was killed Tuesday during an insurgent attack in the south. Insurgents are trying to regain territory they've lost during the past two years when tens of thousands of coalition and Afghan forces routed them from their strongholds in the south.

The trooper's nationality has not yet been released.

So far this year, 238 coalition service members have been killed in Afghanistan, including at least 172 Americans.
