Eight passengers, two pilots reported to have lost their lives in the crash.

Ten people, including the two pilots, died when a plane crashed Tuesday at an airstrip in South Sudan's Jonglei state, the region's governor said.

"It was with great shock and horror to receive the news of the plane crash (HK-4274) of South Sudan Supreme Airline that happened today the 2nd day of March 2021 at around 5.05 PM at Pieri Airstrip," Governor Denay Jock Chagor said in a statement sent to AFP Wednesday.

The number of death on flight HK-4274 includes eight passengers and two pilots, according to news reports.

The plane reportedly went down immediately after taking off around 5pm local time (7pm UAE time).
