The two, of the rank of Major, died on the spot,’ Kioko said in a statement.

The cause of the crash was not immediately established.

The chopper is among six U.S.-made light attack helicopter gunships that the Kenya Army Aviation acquired in January, authorities said.

They were part of an initial order of 12 light attack and reconnaissance helicopters meant to enhance the firepower of the military in the wake of sustained attacks by al-Shabab militants, they said.
