A South Korean military helicopter crashed during a test flight on Tuesday in the southeastern city of Pohang, killing five people and injuring one, Reuters reported.

Five of those aboard were killed and the sixth was taken to hospital, it said, adding that the military would set up a panel to determine the cause of the crash.
