Four soldiers were killed when a military helicopter crashed in a residential neighborhood on the Asian side of Istanbul on Monday, the governor of Turkey’s biggest city said.

There were no civilian injuries or casualties, Yerlikaya told reporters, adding that the cause of the crash was not yet known.
