At least 17 people died in South Sudan on Sunday when a small aircraft carrying passengers from Juba International Airport to the city of Yirol crashed, State information Minister Taban Abel told Reuters.

“The plane crashed and killed 17 people and we have three survivors,” Abel told Reuters by phone from Yirol. The plane carried a total of 22 people and two were still missing.

One of the survivors, an Italian doctor working with an NGO, is in critical condition and undergoing surgery in Yirol Hospital, the minister said.

The plane crashed by a river and an eyewitness had earlier said bodies were recovered from the water.

There were three children among the 22 passengers, a source said.

David Subek, Chief Executive officer of South Sudan Civil Aviation Authority in Juba, confirmed the crash and told Reuters he did not know the death toll yet.

Several crashes have occurred in war-torn South Sudan in recent years. In 2017, four passengers were injured after bad weather caused their plane to crash into a fire truck upon landing and burst into flames.

In 2015, dozens of people were killed when a Russian-built cargo plane with passengers on board crashed after taking off from the airport in Juba.

South Sudan always felt North Is their problem not until disintegration, The Southern part resort to killing of themselves over resources and boundary issues.



The Northern part which is the Sudan now stable and peaceful.


I pray this won't be the case in Nigeria in decades to come.

Mechanical error I guess. I no trust all these small 'going banana' aircrafts. Especially when they are not carrying only the pilot.

not true, south Sudan issue is multiple crises unlike Biafra.


Unlike in the Sudan where there is a more cogent sense of fighting off the Arab invader, in Nigeria, its more of political tuzzle on who controls the southern resources.


In Sudan that u mentioned and compared with Nigeria, there is a deep enmity between the Arabs in the Northern Sudan, and the Christians + animists in the Southern Sudan.

This led to the Sudanese Civil Wars, twice, and since 2011, South Sudan has been its own, no more related to the Arabs in North Sudan.

But Sudan is not just only facing this, they are also facing separatism in Darfur, South Kordofan and Blue Nile. Let me also remind u that they are also even Muslims yet they fight against Khartoum for many years now, so southern Sudan is not just a homogenously Christian region like u think.

So the problem of Nigeria is about political and resource issues unlike Sudan that have multiple tribal, racial and religious crises.

The major problem Nigeria is facing is resource control. In Sudan, however, they have been at odds in all occasions, from the Government, to the people - ethnic Nilotic and Nubian groups vs. Arab majority; Arabization vs. Blacks; to even Muslims clash Muslims and Muslims vs. Christians.


This fact is a tragedy of Sudan because it turns the country into a failed state.

So comparing the fate of Southern Sudan with probably Biafra should they get their independence is baseless because Southern Sudan have multiple crises ranging from ethnic Nilotic and Nubian groups vs. Arab majority; Arabization vs. Blacks; to even Muslims clash Muslims and Muslims vs. Christians, which Biafra don't have.
