The United Nations Mission in South (UNMISS) Sudan has confirmed that three crew members of a UN-contracted helicopter have died in a crash near Bentiu in Unity State.
One crew member survived.
UNMISS says the helicopter lost contact with the UN at 2: 30 in the afternoon on Tuesday as it was flying from Wau in Western Bahr El Ghazal State to Bentiu.
UN Spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric says the Mission is launching an investigation to determine the cause of the crash.
“One surviving crew member has received treatment from Médecins Sans Frontieres in Bentiu. The helicopter was on a routine cargo flight with the Mission when contact was lost. Toby Lanzer, the officer-in-charge of UNMISS, expressed his condolences to the families of the deceased, and wished a full and speedy recovery to the injured crew member.”(18”)
The crew members were Russian citizens and the helicopter was contracted from a Russian company, Mr Dujarric said.
UNMISS is helping to stabilize and develop the new African country which became independent in July 2011 but which has been engulfed in conflict since December last year.
