Sudanese Governor, 4 others die in Helicopter crash


An eastern Sudan governor and four of his officials have died in an helicopter crash which occurred today, state media reported.

The helicopter was said to have gone up in flames after it hit a communications tower as it tried to land in the remote Al-Qadarif state. So far no official reason has been given for the crash.  

A number of people were taken to hospital for treatment, state media reported, without giving more details. Among the dead are Al-Qadarif governor Mirghani Saleh, his cabinet chief, the local police chief and agriculture minister. 

Sudan’s military fleet includes many aircraft bought from the former Soviet Union. Eight people were injured in October when two of its planes collided on the runway at the airport in the capital, Khartoum.

In September, two pilots were killed when a military jet crashed near Omdurman, Khartoum’s twin city.
