Lieutenant General Mohammed Al-Khuder is reportedly 'safe' after fog causes incident in Silit
Kuwait's Army chief of staff, Lieutenant General Mohammed Al-Khuder, has reportedly escaped a helicopter accident during a visit to Bangladesh.
The country's Defence Ministry said on Wednesday that All-Khuder and his accompanying delegation were safe following the accident.
The Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) quoted the ministry as saying that the helicopter was involved in an accident while landing in the Silit area, where the heavy fog obscured the pilot's vision, causing the copter to have contact with trees prior to landing.
No further details were given.
The chief of staff and his entourage left Kuwait on Monday morning for an official visit to Bangladesh.
