NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Searchers have found the bodies of two people on Kenya's highest mountain, in the aftermath of the crashes of three Ugandan helicopter gunships.
They're continuing the search for at least seven soldiers and airmen, in a rugged area where leopards and elephants roam.
A deputy warden at Mt. Kenya National Park says rescue workers saw two bodies and helped rescue five other people from one of two downed helicopters. They spotted the second helicopter at the edge of a cliff, but bad weather and rugged terrain are keeping a rescue team from quickly reaching that site.
A third Ugandan military helicopter that crashed was found yesterday, and the occupants were rescued.
The helicopters were among four that had been headed to Somalia to join the fight against an Islamist militia group with links to al-Qaida.
