4 Dead In Sudan's Fourth Plane Crash In Months.

A cargo plane crashed in Sudan on Monday shortly after taking off from Khartoum airport, killing four crew members, a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority said.

It is the fourth plane crash in Sudan in two months.

"A cargo plane which is a Russian plane from the Ababeel cargo company crashed. On board were four crew members who are dead and two corpses have been recovered so far," spokesman Abdel Hafez Abdel Rahim told AFP.

He said the plane crashed at around 7 a.m. (0400 GMT), but added: "It's too early to say what happened and what was the cause."

"The whole plane blew up in a fireball as it lifted off," one witness waiting at the airport told AFP. He said the left wing appeared to drop as the plane took off and that it crashed in wasteland on the edge of Khartoum airport.

Fire trucks rushed to the scene to put out the smoking wreckage, the witness said.
