Venezuela police helicopter crash kills 5

Venezuelan authorities say a police helicopter has crashed while pursuing suspects in a kidnapping, and all five people aboard have been killed.
Police spokesman Luis Karabin told state television that the helicopter went down Thursday in a forested area east of Caracas.
The cause of the crash was not immediately clear, but Karabin cited atmospheric conditions.
He said the pilot, co-pilot, a technician and two police officers were killed in the crash.
Karabin said authorities rescued two people that had been abducted and that one of the two kidnappers was killed during the pursuit.
