Albanian Ministry of defense announced they had received information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Albania on what happened in Spain.
The helicopter was reportedly shot down yesterday in the southern Spanish province of Malaga, near the town of Cortes de la Frontera, by members of the Spanish police, suspecting that he was transporting narcotics. The aircraft crashed against the electricity pylon and have fallen to pieces.
Spanish police spokesman said yesterday: “We’re still trying to determine how much of hashish was loaded in the helicopter,” but the local newspaper “Malaga hoy” reported that the helicopter was carrying “between 800 and 900 kilo of drugs and was painted black, to be less visible at night.”
