An Afghan army chopper crashed in the country's eastern Wardak province Tuesday night, killing three crews and injuring another, the Defense Ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

"A MI-17 helicopter of the army crashed in Jaghato district due to technical problem on Tuesday night and unfortunately three crews lost their live and another sustained injury," the statement said.

The Wardak province, with Maidan Shar as its capital 35 km west of the national capital Kabul, has been the scene of the Taliban-led insurgency over the past couple of years and the armed group had gained ground in Nurkh and Jalriz districts last month.
