UN Helicopter Crash in South Sudan: Apparently Shot Down?

The UN cargo helicopter that crashed near Bentiu, Capital of the oil rich Unity State has uncertain reports that the Mi-8 chopper was shot down.

Also, an official of UN confirms that the cargo helicopter had been shot down apparently, while a government official in South Sudan points fingers at sympathizers and forces loyal to the rebel commander Peter Gadet as regards to the shooting of the chopper.


UN has been distributing food to over a million displaced persons who have sought shelter in UN bases around the country; while both the government and the rebel forces are yet to form a power sharing administration.

Three out of four of the crew of the Mi-8 chopper died while on a UN mission in South Sudan.
