A plane carrying Sudanese judges and injured people crashed on Thursday in the Darfur region of Sudan, with all those onboard killed.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash.

The aircraft was transporting people injured in a tribal conflict in Darfur to Khartoum for treatment.

The plane’s crew comprised three Sudanese army officers.
