    A top Afghan government official claimed Taliban commander Qari Tahir lured American forces to the scene by telling them a meeting of the militia group was happening.

    ‘Now it's confirmed that the helicopter was shot down and it was a trap that was set by a Taliban commander,’ he told AFP. ‘The Taliban knew which route the helicopter would take.’

    ‘They took position on the either side of the valley on mountains and as the helicopter approached, they attacked it with rockets and other modern weapons. It was brought down by multiple shots.’

    He added that President Hamid Karzai's American-backed government believes the attack was retaliation against the U.S. for the killing of Bin Laden in May.
