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 yesterday. The plane went down in mountains around Talodi, a town in the state of South Kordofan, while taking a delegation there to celebrate the Eid al-Fitr festival marking the end of the month of Ramadan, state news agency Suna said.
The country's Religious Affairs Minister Ghazi al-Sadeq was killed in the crash, along with Mahjoub Abdel Raheem Toutou, the Minister for Youth and Sports, and Eissa Daifallah, the 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 said.
