Military Plane Crash Kills at Least 3 Officer in Sudan

Sudanese military plane has crashed in the White Nile south of the capital, Khartoum, killing all on board.

The prime minister’s office said three bodies of officers, including a lieutenant colonel, was retrieved.

Search efforts were still ongoing for others who were on board when the plane crashed near al-Shegilab on Wednesday.

No further details were released, including how many people were on board.

The crash was the latest involving a military plane in Sudan.

An Apache attack helicopter loaded with weapons and ammunition crashed in January, shortly after taking off from an airport on the eastern borders with Ethiopia. The three-person crew survived that crash.

At least 16 people, including two women and two children, were killed in January last year when a military plane, a Russian Antonov An-12, crashed in the restive West
