8 believed dead in Kazakhstan helicopter crash

Almaty: Emergency service officials in Kazakhstan say they have found the wreckage of a helicopter that went missing earlier this week with eight people onboard.

The Emergency Services Ministry said today that it believes all eight occupants were killed, but that only six bodies have so far been located.

It says only the tail of the helicopter remained intact. Dozens of search workers using helicopters, vehicles and boats had been scouring valleys and a lake near the Central Asian nation`s border with China since the helicopter disappeared Saturday.
Operations have been complicated by poor weather in the area.

The Russian-made Mi-8 helicopter was being leased to a Kazakh-Chinese oil pipeline construction company.
