South Sudan: airplane crashed with 44 on board. Confusion on the victims' number
Wau, Sudan - The aircraft in the impact with the runway of the Wau airport caught fire
(WAPA) - The "National Courier" Juba's newpaper reported that a scheduled airplane of the local carrier South Supreme Airlines crashed in the last hours on the Wau airport, coming from Juba capital with 44 people on board. This number appears still undefined because the airline had not yet unveiled the official list of passengers and crew, and there is still confusion on the victims' and survivors number. The airplane in the crash seems caught fire and the declarations run after are contrasting. The local radio reported that some people have been extracted still alive from the fumy wreckage of the aircraft. Other reported on numerous wounded and on some victims, while the same "Courier" initially wrote that the tragedy had not left survivors.
The local media show the images of the still fumy plane on the airport runway.
South Supreme Airlines is a carrier of the South Sudan that has begun to operate links from Juba and Entebbe in September 2013; after different vicissitudes from this year it serves with an only CRJ-100. It has not released declarations. (Avionews)
