Ugandan military helicopters go missing on trip to Somalia

Two military helicopters on their way to deployment in Somalia are missing and one has crash-landed, a Ugandan military spokesman said Monday.

Four attack helicopters were scheduled to refuel in Garissa, Kenya, said Ugandan Col. Felix Kulayigye. One landed safely, he said, while Kenyan air force officials told him the five-man crew of another helicopter was safe after a crash landing near Mount Kenya.

The other two helicopters were missing, Kulayigye said.

"It is too early to speculate the reason for the incidents," Kulayigye said.

    Me too. Those helicopter pilots probably joined the Somalian warlords and gave them helicopters to show their loyalty.
    Just being cynical people.

    Good Morning banasy.

    How could a journalist save time and effort when writing stories?
    It is clear that every journalist endeavors to provide good quality stories to his readers. For this reason, most journalists tend to rely on different sources, which make them always unable to finish on time. This also makes them confused about which sources to use and which not. The new service provided by Sahafiy makes a journalist able to write his stories in less time and less effort. With one click, a journalist can get dozens of sources in a short period of time.
