Algeria’s defense ministry said Monday that three naval officers were killed when their helicopter crashed after striking power lines during a night patrol 70 kilometers southwest of the capital Algiers.

The navy rescue helicopter went down on Sunday night in Tipaza province, the ministry said.

The aircraft “hit high-voltage electricity lines” in the Hamr el-Ain area, killing three officers as it crashed.

In February 2014, 77 people died when a military plane carrying army personnel and family members crashed between Tamanrasset in southern Algeria and the eastern city of Constantine.
