The Egyptian military has said a pilot was killed when an air force fighter jet crashed during training on Tuesday, according to a statement.

The jet crashed during training at a practice area, the statement said. The cause of the crash is being investigated.

Last month, an Egyptian fighter jet crashed due to a technical malfunction during a training sortie. The pilot managed to safely parachute to the ground.
