Norwegian rescue officials say the wreckage of a Russian helicopter that crashed with eight people onboard off the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard has been located on the seabed.

The Joint Rescue Coordination Center for northern Norway said that the Mi-8 helicopter, which went down Thursday near the Svalbard settlement of Barentsburg, is around two kilometres East of Cape Heer at a depth of nearly 210 meters.

A Norwegian remote-controlled submarine was involved in the search, which will now focus on the chopper's passengers.
