Iraqi army helicopter crash kills all seven people, military says

BAGHDAD: An Iraqi armed force helicopter crash amid a normal flight on Sunday, killing every one of the seven individuals on load up, a military articulation and Iraqi flying corps officers said.

The Russian-made Mi-17 helicopter went down close to the southern territory of Kut, the announcement said. Two pilots and five armed force officers were killed, Iraqi air forces officers told Reuters.

Iraq is gradually modifying its flying corps, once one of the world’s biggest, after the U.S.- driven attack that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003.
