Cairo - Four crew members were killed, two of them Egyptian and two Emirati, when their military aircraft crashed during joint exercises on Wednesday, officials said.
The crash occurred in Egypt, the UAE's official news agency WAM said.
The crash was caused by a technical problem, the Egyptian military said in a statement, without specifying what type of aircraft was involved.
Egypt and the United Arab Emirates enjoy a close relationship, cooperating in various fields besides military activities.
In August UAE warplanes carried out air strikes from Egypt against Islamist-led militias that had seized the Libyan capital Tripoli.
