An Israeli military officer, who was an advisor to Cameroon's president, has been killed in a helicopter crash in the central African country.

Retired Colonel Avi Sivan's chopper went down near Cameroon's capital city of Yaounde on Monday, Israeli daily Ha'aretz reported.

Sivan was responsible for training a presidential guard brigade unit in Cameroon.

There have been no comments on the cause of the incident.

Sivan was the head of Israeli military's delegation to Cameroon.

Following his retirement from public service, he then turned to the private sector as a security advisor.
