OSLO (Reuters) - The Russian helicopter that went down off the coast of Svalbard on Thursday has still not been located more than 90 minutes after it went down at sea, Norway’s rescue service told independent broadcaster TV2.

The helicopter had a crew of five and three passengers, all with “Russian-sounding names”, said the leader of the rescue operation coordination, Tore Hongset.
