Australian and four others die in helicopter crash

JOHANNESBURG: BHP Billiton's chief operating officer in Angola, Australian David Hopgood, and four others have been killed in a helicopter crash in Angola.

The company suspended its operations in the country after the crash on Friday.

The others who died were British operations manager Kevin Ayre, another British staff member, Guy Sommerfield, the Namibian businessman Louwrens Prinsloo, and Kottie Breedt, the South African pilot, the company said.

The crash, which killed all on board, happened on Friday afternoon in bad weather about 80 kilometres from a diamond exploration site in north-eastern Angola that they were visiting.

BHP Billiton has more than 100 operations in 25 countries.
