Chopper crash

RESCUERS were searching for six French soldiers missing after a helicopter crashed into Atlantic waters during a training exercise off Gabon's coast, killing two, France's military said yesterday.

Three soldiers were found alive, but one of them succumbed to injuries suffered in late Saturday's crash, military spokesman Pascal Carpentier said. Another soldier's body was pulled from the water overnight. The chopper went down shortly after taking off from a French naval vessel participating in joint exercise with Gabon forces.
