At least 19 killed in South Sudan air crash”

At least 19 people have died in South Sudan when the aircraft they were in was carrying them crashed. The aircraft ended up partly submerged in shallow water in the river. "It is a commercial plane that crashed", he added.

There were 22 people on board the flight that departed Juba International Airport in the morning, said State information Minister Taban Abel.

The three survivors are a 6-year-old child, an adult man and an Italian doctor with an aid organisation who was in surgery and in serious condition, Aguek said.

An eye witness had earlier told Reuters that bodies were recovered from the water.

"When it arrived the weather was so foggy and when it tried to land it crashed into Lake Yirol adjacent to Yirol town". There were three children among the 22 passengers, another source said.

The BBC reported the victims included the pilot and co-pilot, a member of the Red Cross and an Anglican bishop. Its so sad. Many people on board are feared dead.

Reports said the left main landing gear hit a fire truck besides the runway and the aircraft burst into flames.

South Sudan was plunged into civil war in December 2013, when President Salva Kiir accused his former deputy Riek Machar of planning a coup, leaving tens of thousands dead and millions displaced.
