More info from the BBC......

A military aircraft has crashed on a training mission in

Egypt, killing six troops, Egyptian officials say.

One passenger was also hurt in the crash, according to state-owned

broadcaster, Channel One.

The aircraft reportedly came down in Kawm Awshim in Fayoum province, about 100 km (62 miles) south of Cairo.

The broadcaster said the crash had been caused by "technical failure". The

defence minister has ordered an inquiry into the accident.

Earlier reports had stated that seven crew were killed in the crash.
