13 killed in Sudan military crash: state media

Thirteen Sudanese military personnel died and nine others were injured when their transport plane crashed today on its way to conflict-plagued Darfur, the army told official media.

"Thirteen were killed instantly, and nine were taken to hospital," Sawarmi Khaled Saad, the Sudanese army spokesman, was quoted as saying by the state SUNA news agency.

It is the worst toll in a series of Sudanese military aviation incidents since early last year.

Saad said the plane carried six crew and 16 other members of the armed forces.
