Meanwhile, 16 service members were killed in a military transport place crash in northern MS last month.

Earlier this month, an Army Black Hawk helicopter crash off the coast of Hawaiileft five soldiers missing, ultimately forcing the Army to suspend its search and presume the soldiers dead.

A U.S. military helicopter crashed during a training exercise off the coast of Yemen Friday, U.S. Central Command reported Saturday.

Officials have not provided information on the identities of those on board or the unit to which the aircraft belongs, saying only that the incident occurred around 7 p.m. local time about 20 miles off Yemen's southern coast.

"This aircraft was based and launched from an overseas location [in support of] U.S. Central Command operations", the email said, declining to name the location due to operational concerns. The Pentagon has conducted more than 80 airstrikes in Yemen this year, officials say.

The crash took place during a scheduled training mission, while US forces have been conducting strikes against the al Qaeda terrorist group in the region.

"Training events such as this are routinely held by USA forces within a theater of operations in order to maintain the proficiency within the operating environment", a Central Command official stated.

In April, one crew member was killed and two others seriously injured when their Black Hawk US army helicopter crashed on a Maryland golf course.

A search for the five crew members missing in that crash was later suspended.
