Two pilots were wounded Friday when their military helicopter suffered mechanical problems and they had to make an emergency landing, the Lebanese army said.
The army command said that the French-made Gazelle helicopter was on a training flight when it was forced to land near the eastern city of Baalbek in the Bekaa Valley.
A senior military official said the helicopter caught fire during the landing and the two pilots suffered burns and other minor injuries.
