13 bus crash mourners die in Sudan river boat sinking

KHARTOUM -- Thirteen people traveling to mourn victims of a bus crash drowned when their boat capsized in Sudan's White Nile state, a state government spokesman said on Saturday.

The boat carrying 22 people across the White Nile river "turned over and sank" on Friday, spokesman Abdelmagied Abdelhamied said, adding "13 people drowned and nine were rescued."

Abdelhamied said the passengers were family members and friends who were crossing the river in order to pay their respects to 37 people killed on Thursday when two buses collided.

The boat went down near the settlement of Alrader, some 60 kilometers (37 miles) south of the capital Khartoum.
