A helicopter carrying four Americans crashed shortly after taking off from a national park in northwest Kenya on Sunday evening, killing all of the passengers and the Kenyan pilot.

The aircraft crashed after lifting off from a remote island in Central Island National Park, Kenya's National Police Service said on its Twitter feed.
