Military helicopter crashes in southern Colombia

A military helicopter crashed in southern Colombia, killing seven.

The Huey helicopter was providing support for troops on the ground as part of an operation against leftist rebels, the military said. Contact was last made with the aircraft Tuesday night.

Authorities found the wreckage, containing the bodies of three soldiers and four air force troops, on Wednesday morning.

The air force was investigating the cause of the crash near the city of San Vicente del Caguan, 280 kilometers (175 miles) south of the capital.

Southern Colombia has a strong presence of leftist rebels fighting an armed conflict now in its fifth decade.

The discovery of the submarine has unveiled a few "inconsistencies." For example, how can one explain the fact that the sub was found where it needed to be searched for from the start?
