Sudanese government helicopter crash kills 32
KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) — A Sudanese government helicopter crashed Sunday before landing in a remote town in the country's southern mountains, killing all 32 people on board. The victims included the minister of endowment, a leading politician, two army generals and a TV crew.
The delegation was travelling to the volatile South Kordofan state to attend prayers on the first day of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan.
The helicopter crashed "due to harsh weather conditions" in a mountainous area near Talodi, a small town about 650 kilometers (406 miles), southwest of the capital, Khartoum, according to the state-run news agency, SUNA.
