The bodies of five of six French soldiers reported missing after a helicopter crashed into Atlantic waters off Gabon's coast were found on Sunday, the French president's office said. In a statement, Nicolas Sarkozy's office said the deathtoll from Saturday's crash now stands at seven. Two soldiers survived the crash and are "out of danger," and one is still missing. Rescuers will continue to search for the missing man, the statement said. The helicopter's wreckage was discovered under 35 meters of water, the statement said. The helicopter crashed off Nyogne, a village between the west African country's capital, Libreville, and the oil port of Port Gentil.
