TRIPOLI (Reuters) - At least 12 people were killed when a helicopter crashed west of the Libyan capital Tripoli on Monday, a security source said.

The helicopter may have been hit by gunfire before crashing in the coastal area, the source said. It had been carrying cash for a local bank on the way out and was returning with local residents to Tripoli.
