Russian helicopter shot down-World

A Russian helicopter was shot down, killing 18 people. Reasons for crash vary from fighting with separtist rebles, to technical failiures.

The Guardian is a much longer article than the BBC one. So, of course it gives more detail. For instance, it gives other explanations for the crash. The information it chose to put in the article seems appropriate. It begins by mentioning the crash and then saying that the reason why it crashed is not confirmed, and it ends with some background of fighting with the rebels. The Guardian basically has the same information over a longer paper, but we still come back with a better understanding for the reasons of fighting.
Both papers also use a quote from an official who was not authorized to speak with the media. I thought this quote turned out pretty good and useful even though the name couldn't be given primarily because of the timeliness of the issue.
