Pakistan air force: Technical fault caused helicopter crash

Pakistan’s air force says a technical fault caused the deadly helicopter crash in the country’s north and that a fire that subsequently broke out on the aircraft caused the high number of fatalities. Four foreigners – the ambassadors from the Philippines and Norway and the wives of the ambassadors from Malaysia and Indonesia – were among those killed Friday, along with two pilots and a crew member. Air force spokesman Syed Muhammad Ali told the state-run news agency that the technical failure forced the crash landing and that the helicopter caught fire when it went down in the village of Naltar.
