Kabul, May 6 : All 10 passengers and crew on board a US CH-47 Chinook helicopter that crashed in Afghanistan were killed, the US military said today.

The helicopter crashed while on combat operations in the eastern province of Kunar late yesterday. The US miliary said the crash was not a result of enemy fire.

''The remains of 10 servicemen were found in the aircraft.

There were no survivors,'' said US military spokeswoman Lieutenant Tamara Lawrence.

She declined to specify the nationality of the dead. US forces work with Afghan troops and soldiers from other countries in a US-led alliance.
