Plane crash in Sudan kills four including one Russian

Four crew members, one of whom was Russian, have been killed when an IL-76 cargo plane crashed near the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. Witnesses say there was a major fire at the site of the crash.

The Russian-made jet was travelling to the city of Juba, but lost altitude shortly after take-off and crashed in a deserted area close to the airport.

It's the second plane crash in the North African country in the last week and the third this month.
