Plane Crash In South Sudan Leaves 10 People Dead

A commercial plane crashed late Tuesday in South Sudan, killing all 10 people on board, according to the governor of Jonglei state. 

Ten people including eight passengers and two pilots lost their lives after South Supreme Airlines flight HK-4274 bound for the capital Juba took off from the town of Pieri in Jonglei state and crashed.

The South Supreme Airlines flight went down immediately after taking off at 5 p.m. local time (1500GMT).   

The plane crashed in a region where there is no network coverage, so it was difficult to confirm the exact number of casualties, he added.
