A cargo plane carrying an added load of unregistered people crashed Wednesday morning along the banks of the Nile River after taking off from South Sudan's capital of Juba.Gatluak said officials don't know how many people were on the plane because they do not have the passenger manifest yet.Ateny, the presidential spokesman, said 10 people on the ground were killed but witnesses and emergency workers said no one had been in the swampy plot when the plane crashed.It's common for security forces to put family members on cargo planes to Paloich even if they are not on the manifest, according to Kenyi Galla, assistant operations manager for Combined Air Services, a company that operates chartered flights across South Sudan.
