UAE Military helicopter shot down in Yemen, 4 soldiers killed

ABU DHABI: Four soldiers from the United Arab Emirates were killed when their helicopter crashed during a mission in Yemen, the UAE military confirmed on Saturday.

The Saudi-led coalition supporting the Yemeni government against Shia rebels had initially played down Friday evening’s incident, saying that the pilot had been forced to make an emergency landing “resulting in minor injuries to the crew”.
