The UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) in South Sudan says a child was killed when one of its planes hit a house as it attempted to land during a thunderstorm in the capital, Juba.

Four other people were injured.
The cargo plane, which was contracted to airdrop food, hit a tree and the metal roof of the house. Its main landing gear collapsed when it tried to land.
The cargo plane was then diverted to Uganda’s Entebbe airport.

The UN says an official investigation is under way.
WFP South Sudan Country Director Adnan Khan said the UN would provide support to the grieving family.
The UN radio station in South Sudan has been tweeting about the story:
