Khartoum - A Sudanese cabinet minister was killed on Sunday when an airplane went down in war-torn South Kordofan state, official media said.

"The presidency of the republic eulogises the Minister of Guidance (Ghazi Al- Saddiq) and others martyred in a plane crash this morning in Talodi," the official SUNA news agency said in a brief dispatch.

Saddiq took on the Guidance and Endowments portfolio, among whose duties is religious issues, during a July cabinet reshuffle which trimmed the number of ministries.

Prior to the reshuffle he had been minister of tourism and antiquities since December.
