Four people were killed in a November 2010 Cameroon military helicopter crash and one person survived, according to government sources.

“The crashed aircraft had five people on board including three crew and two passengers. Four died in the accident on Monday,” government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary said in a statement.

“One of them survived. He was admitted to a hospital in the area,” he said.

The spokesman said the Bell 412 military helicopter was travelling between Douala, the country’s capital and largest city and Yaounde when it went down. The 412 is considered a utility chopper of the Bell Huey family of helicopters. The exact location of the crash was not released.

One of the passengers was the commander of the rapid intervention battalion, Avraham Avir Silvan, who has Israeli nationality, defence sources reported. Silvan was also in charge of security for Cameroon President Paul Biya, sources said.

Cameroon, whose official name is the Republic of Cameroon, is in Central Africa.
