Bad Weather May Have Caused Turkish Military Helicopter Crash: Minister

11 military personnel martyred, 2 injured after Cougar type helicopter crashes in eastern Turkey.

Yesterday's deadly crash of an army helicopter in Bitlis province in eastern Turkey may have been caused by adverse weather conditions, Turkish National Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said early Friday.
"Based on initial information and witnesses' statements, it is considered that the crash occurred due to suddenly changing adverse weather conditions," Akar said at the 8th Corps Command in Elazig province.
He said the exact cause of the crash will be determined following a detailed investigation which will begin later in the day.
Stating that 11 personnel were martyred and two were injured in the crash, Akar said the injured are being treated at a hospital and are in good health.
He extended his condolences to the grieving families of the 11 soldiers who were martyred, including a corps commander, and wished a quick recovery to the wounded.
Contact with the Cougar-type military helicopter, which took off from Bingol for Tatvan district in Bitlis at 1.55 p.m. local time (1055GMT), was lost at 2.25 p.m. (1125GMT).
