The South Sudanese army now admits it shot down in error a UN helicopter killing its four Russian crew members.
The UN says it was on a reconnaisance mission in an area where the SPLA has been fighting Yau Yau rebels.
The army says it saw the Mi8 helicopter landing and contacted the UN mission, UNMISS, to find out if it had flights in the area. When told there were none, it opened fire.
