An air crash Thursday morning near the Sudanese capital Khartoum killed six Russian crewmembers and one Sudanese interpreter. The Sudanese media reported the news referring to spokesman for the Sudanese Aviation Ministry Osman al Badri. Presently, the Russian Embassy in Sudan is checking the information about the death of the Russians as a result of the air crash, a staff member of the Embassy told RIA Novosti. The crashed plane belonged to the Sudanese private company Al Garb (the West). The plane crashed in a sparsely populated area. According to the preliminary information from air traffic control, the plane crashed because it ran out of fuel. The plane flew to Khartoum airport where it was to land at 8:15, local time. The air traffic control service lost contact with the plane at 8:07. Later, at 8:30, another plane's crew from the Sudan Air Company reported to the air traffic control service that they saw the remains of a burning plane on land. According to Mr. al Badri, rescuers immediately arrived at the accident site and found the bodies of two crewmembers. Searches for other crewmembers continue.
