SAD...3 feared dead as UN helicopter crashedA Senegalese combat helicopter from the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic has crashed, killing three people, the mission head said on Friday.

The crash occurred as the chopper was landing in the western town of Bouar and also resulted in one injury, MINUSCA chief Mankeur Ndiaye wrote in a tweet.

MINUSCA has more than 12,000 uniformed personnel trying to restore stability to Central African Republic, where mainly Muslim Selaka rebels overthrew the president in 2013, prompting reprisals from mostly Christian militia.
