"The circumstances of the accident and the causes of the crash are being determined," Defence Minister Bozo Vucinic told a news conference. He said the soldiers were on a regular training flight.

The helicopter crashed at about 11 a.m. (0900 GMT) some 10 metres from the sea in the mainly uninhabited Lustica peninsula, in the picturesque Boka Kotorska bay.
