A passenger plane reportedly carrying almost 44 passengers crashed at Wau Airport in South Sudan Monday, though it wasn't immediately clear whether the commercial flight was landing or taking off from the tarmac.

"The weather is not good", Paul Charles, an engineer at Wau airport, told AFP.

South Supreme Airlines began operating in September 2013, with a handful of flights every week between South Sudan and neighbouring Uganda.

At least 9 people were reprtedly pulled out from the debris alive.

I think, above all, in football it's not simple to give always a correct evaluation for players. Chelsea have kept only 2 clean sheets in their last 9 Premier League games.

The plane, which belonged to South Supreme Airline, crashed onto the runway when it was landing.

A local official told BBC that the plan was coming from the country's capital, Juba, when it crashed.

Photos from the scene show fire engines dousing the smouldering wreckage with water. "But when it touched the ground, it immediately burst into a huge flame".
