Narrative:
Sudanese state media say a military helicopter has crashed in the country's western Darfur region, killing all five on board.

It's the second military helicopter crash in Sudan in less than a week.

Army spokesman Col. Khaled al-Sawarmy says technical failure caused the MI-17 helicopter to crash as it was about to land at the airport in the city of El Fasher on Monday morning.
