Islamabad (AP) -- A Pakistani army helicopter flying in a rescue and relief mission in the country's flood-stricken southwest lost contact with a regional control tower and was missing late Monday, the military said.

The fate of its six-member crew, including a top commander, was not immediately known. The helicopter was part of aid efforts in the flood-affected southwestern Baluchistan province.
