Sudan Plane crash In South Kills All 32 On Board

The office of the Sudanese president says all 32 people on board died when a plane carrying a government delegation crashed in the country's south.

The crash in the early hours of Sunday killed the country's minister of endowment, Ghazi al-Sadeq, and a leading member of Sudan's Peace and Justice Party, Makki Balayela.

They were en route to the volatile South Kordofan state, to attend prayers for a Muslim holiday.

Earlier reports from Sudan's state news agency SUNA said the plane crashed "due to harsh weather conditions" in a mountainous area near Talodi, a small town about 650 kilometers, or 406 miles, southwest of the capital, Khartoum.
