A helicopter crash in Sudan's eastern al-Qadarif state on Sunday has claimed the lives of seven local government officials, state news agency SUNA reported.
The state's governor and three security officials were among the dead. A number of people were also injured in the incident, SUNA said. The officials had been carrying out a security tour of the province.
The cause of the crush is still unknown.
State TV earlier reported that a plane, not a helicopter, had crashed.
Al-Qadarif state is known for its farmland and agricultural projects.
