|UNITED NATIONS Kellyn Acosta USA Jersey , Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- The UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) has confirmed that UN helicopter which crashed in South Sudan last month killing three Russian crewmen was "shot down."
The mission said "experts who concluded the first stage of their investigation yesterday have uncovered evidence on the circumstances of the crash of a UN Mi-8 helicopter on August 26, indicating that the aircraft was shot down," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters at a daily briefing held Tuesday.
The helicopter, which was on a routine cargo flight from Wau in Western Bahr El Ghazal state to Bentiu, crashed on Aug. 26 about 10 kilometers south of Bentiu in Unity State, killing three Russian crewmen and severely injuring a fourth.
For the past two weeks Justin Morrow USA Jersey , the mission has been conducting preliminary investigations into the crash. In addition to the mission's own probe, which began right after the crash, a technical investigation has also started with the participation of the United Nations, South Sudanese and Russian experts.
The mission has also confirmed that, during a phone call with a staff member in Bentiu on Aug.17, Peter Gadet Julian Green USA Jersey , the commander of opposition forces in Unity State, alleged that UNMISS aircraft were being used to transport Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) troops and threatened to shoot it down, Dujarric said.
The staff member refuted the accusations and to ensure the safety of its aircraft, UNMISS immediately started sharing information on all its flights into Bentiu with the opposition forces as well as the SPLA.
However, the spokesman said that these findings come as a preliminary probe, it is "premature" at this stage to conclusively apportion blame for the shooting down of the helicopter.
"A more in-depth technical investigation which is being conducted in compliance with international air safety standards is underway Juan Agudelo USA Jersey ," said Dujarric, who added that an independent Board of Inquiry has also been established by the United Nations to look into the incident and will provide additional information to determine the source of the ground fire for bringing the copter down.
Political in-fighting between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy, Riek Machar, started in mid-December 2013 and has since turned into a full-fledged conflict that also sent nearly more than 102,000 civilians fleeing to UNMISS bases around South Sudan.
Overall, the crisis has uprooted some 1.5 million people and placed more than 7 million at risk of hunger and disease.
On Aug. 15 Jozy Altidore USA Jersey , the latest round of clashes broke out in Bentiu after the two rivals and their representatives fell short of the goal of reaching a power-sharing deal through talks in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, facilitated by the Intergovernmental Authority on Development.
These will bring even the star quarterback to tears: the films} that appeal to both our passion for sports, and that basic human desire to watch the underdog succeed.

Friday Night Lights: A cult classic directed by the broadly acclaimed Peter Berg, Friday Night Lights spans the season of a Texas high school football team. In West Texas (or so the story leads us to} believe), football is life, and vice versa. Since made into an award winning TV show, if nothing else Friday Night Lights is a gripping tale of the frailty of youth. We especially recommend this movie for teens and young adults. Try to catch it on Direct TV.
Any Given Sunday: The cast alone makes this movie a must-see. Jamie Foxx Jordan Morris USA Jersey , Dennis Quaid, Cameron Diaz, Al Pacino and James Woods all on the same screen? Throw in cameos by rapper LL Cool J and former football star Lawrence Taylor, and you have the recipe for a very entertaining blockbuster feature. Brought up to the first-string due to an injury to the starting quarterback, Jamie Foxx's character is suddenly thrust into the limelight. Unfortunately, this new world of easy women John Brooks USA Jersey , fast cars and HDTVs blaring rap videos 247 quickly begins to come apart at the seams, and the leading man is compelled to deal with issues including racism, drug abuse, and sexual misconduct. Perhaps a veiled attempt at an inside look into the National Football League, Any Given Sunday offers several hours of great entertainment.
Rudy: This is the ultimate feel good story, a tale of hard work Joe Corona USA Jersey , perserverance, and determination. Rudy is a young man from a small town in Indiana with just one dream: to wear the gold helmet of the Notre Dame Fightin' Irish.

If you're trying to introduce a young person to the sport of football, make sure that Rudy precedes your subscription to the NFL Sunday Ticket.
The Replacements: Our final classic football film deviates from the other three by just a tad. The Replacements are a team of labor scabs led by the washed-up Shane Falco (played by Keanu Reeves). These "replacements" are really a serious crew of misfits Jesse Gonzalez USA Jersey , including a player recently freed from prison for the sole purpose of playing, as well as an gambling addict, alcoholic Brit.
