Narrative:
A helicoper from the NATO crashed in southern Afghanistan on February the 11th 2012, and at least four people on board were killed.
The Western military alliance said that the aircraft, owned by the Kabul-based logistics company Supreme and crewed by four Tajik civilians, went down somewhere in the west of Zabul province.

Supreme says the helicopter was operated by a company called Central Asian Aviation Services.

Another report states that the helicopter was on the balance of the Air Force of Defense Ministry of Tajikistan.
