Two U.K. Puma helicopters collided mid-air north of Baghdad April 15, killing two servicemen and seriously injuring a third. The U.K. defense ministry has not said why British personnel were in the northern part of the country. British personnel predominantly operate in southern Iraq. Defence Secretary Des Browne said the crash is under investigation but did not appear to have been the result of an attack by insurgents.  For related news
