Juba, (Agency) 4 NOv :A cargo plane crashed on Wednesday along the banks of the Nile River after taking off from South Sudan's capital, Juba, killing at least 25 people, witnesses and officials said.
An Associated Press reporter at the scene of the crash saw multiple victims’ bodies, including those of women and children. Parts of the plane were scattered in a bushy area on the banks of the Nile with a few homes nearby. Packages of cheap sandals, cigarettes, beer and crackers were strewn amid the wreckage. The white tail section of the plane protruded from the bush.

Yashin, who saw the plane come down, said it seemed as though initially the plane might crash into a market area before the pilot apparently diverted it. Another witness, Angelo Kenyi, said a child, who looked no more than a year old, and an elderly woman were pulled from the fuselage.
Apparently all of those killed had been on the plane, local residents said, which crashed into a swampy, muddy farm plot in Juba with no structures. Onlookers quickly gathered near the site, about 1 mile from Juba's international airport. After the crash, planes were still taking off and landing at the airport.
