Baku, March 30, AZERTAC

A Pakistani helicopter deployed as part of the UN's peacekeeping mission in the DRC has crashed with eight people on board, according to DW.

The Congolese army says rebels in the country's east shot the aircraft down.

The helicopter came down in an area controlled by the March 23 Movement (M23) rebels, General Sylvain Ekenge, a spokesman for the military governor of North Kivu province, said in a statement.
