Khartoum, Oct 3 (IANS) Over 45 passengers survived after a Sudanair passenger plane made an emergency landing here at Khartoum airport Sunday following a technical snag.

The Fokker 50 plane was on a normal flight between Sudan’s capital Khartoum and South Sudan’s Malakal city, Xinhua reported.

Airport authorities had to close the roads near the airport and support the runway sides with sand to ensure the plane’s safe landing.
