Russian helicopter comes under fire in Somalia, no casualties - source
MOSCOW. June 29 (Interfax) - A Russian helicopter chartered by the United Nations came under fire in Somalia; no one was hurt, an informed source told Interfax in Moscow on Sunday.
"Engineers examining a Mil Mi-8 helicopter after a flight on Friday night found a hole, which was presumably made by a 10-15 mm round, in the main rotor. Most probably, the bullet passed clear and none of the crewmembers was hurt," the source said.
In his words, the helicopter flew from Mogadishu to Ceelbuur, Buloburde and Beledweyne on contract with the UN.
