BREAKING: Israeli Apache Helicopters Crash into Each Other

CNN Breaking: “Two Israeli Apache helicopters crash into each other over northern Israel, the IDF says, adding there are casualties.”

UPDATE: Oddly, CNN has taken the BREAKING NEWS banner down and has no obvious links to the story. AP has details:

Two Apache attack helicopter crashed in northern Israel near the Lebanon border early Friday, injuring four soldiers, the Israeli military said. Al-Jazeera TV reported that four Israeli soldiers were killed, but did not give a source.

An Associated Press photographer saw the wreckage of one helicopter on the ground. The helicopters collided near the village of Ramot Naftali, which is about 2 1/2 miles east of the Israel-Lebanon border in the Galilee panhandle.
