A baby was pulled alive from the wreckage of a cargo plane which crashed in South Sudan, killing up to 41 people. He was one of only two survivors (an elderly woman) pulled from the crash, but the other one later died.

The Russian-made Antonov-12 aircraft crashed along the banks of the White Nile River this morning barely a mile from the airport in the south Sudan capital Juba. 18 people on the ground were also killed.

44-year-old aircraft was reportedly carrying 18 people along with the cargo, but was only designed to hold 12 people. Besides the five Armenians crew, a Russian crew member also died in the crash.

It comes days after Russian holiday jet crashed in Egypt killing 224 people amid fears it was targeted in terror attack plotted by ISIS in Sinai.
