ROME (Reuters] – Five people died in a helicopter accident in Italy on Saturday. Two passengers are still missing from the plane two days later.

After taking off from Lucca, Tuscany on Thursday, the helicopter was headed towards Treviso in northern Italy when bad weather caused it to disappear from radar screens.
Seven passengers were on the helicopter. Four Turkish businessmen, working for Eczacibasi Consumer Products subsidiary, Eczacibasi Industrial Group, were among them. The company stated that they were attending an Italian paper technology fair.
The Lebanese state news agency NNA stated that the two other passengers were Lebanese.
