Russian Military Helicopter Fires at War Games Spectators
It was too close for comfort. Russian media report that a helicopter participating in joint Russian-Belarussian military exercises accidentally fired toward a group of spectators, including journalists. Officials said the missiles hit a truck, but didn’t clarify if there were any injuries, while another military source said three people were hurt. An undated video has emerged showing a helicopter at low altitude firing several missiles that narrowly miss the cameraman. The war games, which involve 12,700 people and have raised tensions across the Baltics, are set to conclude today.
