TUNIS—The Tunisian navy has retrieved two bodies of crew members after a helicopter crashed into the sea, Tunisia’s Defence Ministry said on Thursday.

The ministry said earlier it had lost contact with a helicopter that left for a night flight near Bizerte late on Wednesday with four crew on board.

It added that search is ongoing.

In 2021, three soldiers were killed in an army helicopter crash also during a night exercise.
