French military helicopter crashes in Somalia

Press TV – November 11, 2011

Nine people are believed to have died after a French helicopter crashed near Somalia’s Southern port city of Kismayo, Press TV reports.

The military chopper crashed late on Friday as it was patrolling the area between the town of Kuda and Kismayo, local Somali official, Captain Sabriye, said.

The crash caused a massive explosion and sent flames high into the sky.

French helicopters fly over the area, to provide backup for Kenyan forces, who launched an incursion into Somalia in October in pursuit of al-Shabab fighters.

In late October, French military spokesman Colonel Thierry Burkhard said Paris would transport air-borne military equipment to Kenyan soldiers near the Somali border.

  1. Rats from the French military, al Shabab freedom fighters will drag your naked corpses through Mogadishu until you have no more skin left on your butts. Remember what happened to some Americans a while back?
