One of three helicopters escorting Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf crashed in Pakistan's portion of Kashmir on Monday, killing four soldiers on board, but the president was unhurt, officials said. Musharraf already had reached his destination when the accident occurred, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad told Dawn News TV. The president's spokesman, Rashid Qureshi, was among several passengers on the chopper who were injured, a senior government official told The Associated Press. An intelligence official confirmed that Qureshi was injured. Neither official had details on Qureshi's condition.
