The Indonesian military has established an investigation team to ascertain the cause of the crash of an Army Bell 205 helicopter that ripped through homes in Sleman, Yogyakarta on Friday.

Army spokesman Brig. Gen. Mohamad Sabrar Fadhilah said on Friday that the team was collecting data and information regarding the accident.

“Please, let the investigation team do their job,” Sabrar said, declining to divulge details of the investigation, promising that the team would disclose its results to the public.

He also said that the Army had recorded the damage caused by the incident, including that of residents’ houses. “There will be follow-up from the Army [regarding the affected houses],” he said without elaborating further.
