The Dutch Ambassador to Pakistan, Marcel de Vink, is on his way back to the Netherlands, to recover after being wounded in a helicopter crash on Friday.
The Taliban in Pakistan claims to have shot down the helicopter that crashed in the northern part of Pakistan earlier today. The Pakistan military refutes the claim, stating that the crash was caused by a technical fault on the helicopter.
The Dutch ambassador to Pakistan was injured in a helicopter crash that killed two pilots and four foreigners, among them the ambassadors to Pakistan from the Philippines, Domingo D. Lucenario Jr., and Norway, Leif H. Larsen. The wives of both the Indonesian and Malaysian ambassadors were also killed, according to a representative of the Pakistani military.
