One Japanese naval crewman has died and seven others are missing after two helicopters crashed during a night-time drill in the Pacific Ocean.

The twin-engine Mitsubishi SH-60Ks were on anti-submarine training near the Izu Islands, 600km (372 miles) south of Tokyo, officials said.

Two flight recorders were discovered close to each other as was debris including parts of rotor blades.

Defence Minister Minoru Kihara said the cause of the accident was unknown.
