A French military helicopter crashed in Ivory Coast while on a training mission, killing the pilot and seriously wounding a second crew member, the French army said on Wednesday.
The Gazelle helicopter came down about 20 kilometres (12 miles) east of the Ivorian commercial capital, Abidjan.
â€œThe cause of the accident is still to be determined,â€ the French army said in a statement.
Both helicopter crew were transferred to a French military base at Port Bouet, where the pilot died. The other crewman is being airlifted to France for further treatment, the army said.(Reuters)
