Afghanistan battle kills one US soldierOne U.S. soldier was killed during a joint U.S.-Afghan Special Operations mission in Afghanistan, two U.S. defense officials told CNN on Tuesday.

Defense officials said a medical helicopter was hit by mortar fire while on the ground but was able to take off. The incident occurred in Marjah in Helmand Province.

Additionally, two U.S. service members were wounded. No additional details have been offered.

"We can confirm a U.S. helicopter has landed in Marjah, Helmand Province, and is experiencing mechanical problems. It was not shot down," said Resolute Support Public Affairs Director U.S. Army Col. Michael Lawhorn.

TVNL Update:  The medevac helicopter's blade hit a wall at landing and was disabled.  So far, it is still on the ground and the wounded have not been flown out of Marjah.
