The bodies of four Italian soldiers, killed yesterday in a helicopter crash in Iraq, arrive around midnight tonight at Rome Ciampino military airport. Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said he was deeply pained by the soldiers deaths. Addressing the Italian parliament, defence undersecretary Filippo Berselli said the tragedy should not discourage or undermine our project of stabilising that martyred country. He later said he believed the crash to be an accident, possibly due to a sandstorm, according to the ANSA news agency. The funerals of the four dead soldiers will be held in a hangar at the 1st Regiment Antares of Viterbo, the crews home base in Italy, which is situated just north of Rome. The date is yet to be confirmed but according to base command, the ceremony is likely to be held on 3 or 4 June and will be attended by the entire air force division at Viterbo.
