A plane has crashed near the international airport in the South Sudanese capital of juba.

An Associated Press reporter near the crash scene said the plane's wreckage is strewn on the east side of the River Nile, but it's not clear if it's a cargo plane or a passenger jet.

Planes could still be seen taking off and arriving at the airport in Juba on Wednesday as many people gathered near the crash site about 1 mile (1.6 kilometers) from the airport.
