At least six people died in South Sudan on Sunday when a small aircraft carrying passengers from Juba International Airport to the city of Yirol crashed, an eye witness said. 

“We are still removing bodies from the water because the aircraft fell into a river. So far, in front of me there are six bodies recovered from the water,” the witness said, adding that the plane was believed to be carrying about 19 passengers.
