NATO officials in Afghanistan said one of its helicopters was deliberately demolished after making an emergency landing in the northern part of the country on Wednesday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The chopper landed in Baghlan province, according to the officials, due to technical problems and was then destroyed by NATO fighter jets out of fear of falling into the hands of Taliban militants.

It was confirmed that no one was killed in the accident.

However, a local Taliban leader said the chopper was attacked by the militants.

Earlier on Monday, another NATO helicopter crashed in the Jaji Meydan district in a southern Pakistani province.
