Thirty two people, including a Sudanese government minister and other officials, were killed when a plane taking them to an Islamic festival crashed in the south of the country on Sunday, state media said.

The plane went down in mountains around Talodi, a town in the border state of South Kordofan, while taking a delegation there to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr festival marking the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, state news agency SUNA said.

The country's Guidance and Endowments (religious affairs) Minister Ghazi al-Sadeq was killed in the crash, along with Mahjoub Abdel Raheem Toutou, South Kordofan state's minister for youth and sports, and Eissa Daifallah, the state's minister for tourism, antiquities and wildlife, it said.

Several people associated with the country's military, state security and state media also died in the crash, the agency added.

The report did not say whether the plane involved belonged to state-owned Sudan Airways or another carrier.


Now it's a plane, 32 dead.
