Saudi Prince Mansour, Officials Killed in Helicopter Crash 

Saudi Prince Mansour bin Muqrin and a number of government officials were killed Sunday in a helicopter crash some 70 miles from the kingdom’s southern border with war-torn Yemen, Saudi officials and state television said.

The helicopter went down while the group was touring an area near the coast in Asir province, of which Prince Mansour is governor, according to a statement from the interior ministry’s security spokesman. The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately known.

“While returning in the evening, contact with the helicopter was lost…authorities are currently searching for survivors where the wreckage was found,” the statement said.
