“Five U.S. servicepeople were killed when a military helicopter crashed over the eastern Mediterranean Sea during a training mission, U.S. officials said Sunday. The military’s European Command said all five crew members on board were killed when the aircraft went down ‘during a routine air refueling mission as part of military training.’ The military first announced the crash on Saturday and said that the cause is under investigation, but there are no indications of any hostile activity involved.” (11/12/23)
