    BUCHAREST, Jan. 6 (Xinhuanet) -- Four Romanian air force helicopters returned home on Friday after finishing their one-year mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    The four Iar-330 Socat helicopters, with 42 crew members, had been in Bosnia and Herzegovina to join a European Union mission of conducting air reconnaissance and providing first-aid service in the war-torn country.

    The copters, jointly developed by Romania's Brasov aircraft factory and an Israeli company, are capable of carrying out round-the-clock operations.

    Their mission in Bosnia and Herzegovina is Romania air force's first military operation abroad after the World War II.

    Currently, Romania still has 80 soldiers deployed in two regions in Bosnia and Herzegovina on a military mission. Enditem
