Helicopter-seaplane collision kills 9 in Russia

The Armenian Embassy said four citizens of Armenia, including two children, were among the dead. Russian Channel One state television said one of its journalists also was killed.

The Cessna 206 and Robinson 44 helicopter collided over the Istra reservoir Saturday night. By Monday morning, investigators said divers had recovered eight bodies, while the search for the ninth victim was continuing.

The federal Investigative Committee said the accident appeared to have been caused by pilot error.
