A Serbian military helicopter has crashed near Belgrade while evacuating a sick baby from the south of the country, killing all seven people on board.

The defence ministry said no one survived the crash last night near Belgrade’s international airport, 18 miles west of the capital.

State TV said the Russian-made MI-17 transport helicopter was carrying four crew members, two medical workers and the five-day-old baby with life-threatening respiratory problems.

The crash occurred in foggy weather. Several commercial flights which tried to land at the airport had to be rerouted to other destinations because of the poor visibility.
