The crash of a Mi-24 military helicopter in Côte d'Ivoire on September 10, which killed five people, including three Bulgarians, was caused by bad weather. This is what head of the armed forces, General Lassina Doumbia, quoted by AFP, said after the investigation, BGNES reported.

One of the helicopter's black boxes has been recovered, as well as the remains of the five crew members. The helicopter was on a mission, government spokesman Amadou Coulibaly said without giving more details. The victims of Côte d'Ivoire will be honored in Abidjan on Friday and a ceremony will be held in honor of the foreign instructors before the repatriation of their bodies.
