LONDON — A Navy helicopter crashed during a training mission in Kuwait, officials said late Sunday. The Navy said that three of the six personnel on board sustained minor injuries when their MH-60S helicopter crashed during an overland training flight at Camp Buehring.

The crash was not due to hostile activity and the cause of the incident is being investigated, the Navy added in a statement. It said the six crew members were transferred to nearby medical facilities and all have since been released.
