The four-member crew of a chopper belonging to the United nations was killed when the helicopter crashed into a hill in Democratic Republic of Congo’s South Kivu province, a UN army spokesperson said Sunday.
Colonel Proser Basse stated the team members were all Russian. Rescue teams hadn’t yet got to the wreckage because of bad weather, he said.
As per a report on local UN-sponsored Radio Okapi, the chopper was going back to the regional capital Bukavu after a mission west of the town.
Western army sources stated the helicopter crashed around 35 kms (22 mls) from Bukavu.
