Yemen airforce pilot dies in crash

A Yemeni air force plane has crashed during a training exercise, killing the pilot.

A government official said the F-5 fighter plane crashed soon after it took off from a military base north of the capital, Sanaa.

Yemen has about fifty operational combat aircraft, mostly ageing, Soviet-built planes.
