About 20 injured in South Africa charter plane crash

As many as 20 people were injured when an aircraft crashed north of Pretoria in South Africa on Tuesday.

"There is smoke all over and paramedics are on the scene".

Local emergency services posted a picture on Twitter showing passengers being helped out of a plane in a grassy field.

Tshwane emergency services spokesperson Johan Pieterse confirmed the fatality and injuries.

"Their injuries range from minor to critical", he said.

Mr Meiring said ER24 helicopters were on the scene to airlift any critical patients to hospital.

Saudi Arabia says ready to boost oil production, taking aim at Iran
The move lower is attributable to Saudi Arabia's willingness to increase demand at the request of US President Donald Trump . China is the largest importer of Iranian oil with 24 percent, followed by India with 18 percent.

"We are not sure what happened at this stage", Rosella Passier, Aviodrome's marketing manager, told French news agency AFP. It had just been refurbished for 350,000 euros ($410,000) at Wonderboom.

"All we know is shortly after take-off the plane experienced trouble and crashed".

The plane was marked Martin's Air Charter, but no information was immediately available about the air company.

The Aviodrome is one of the Netherlands' largest theme parks, where visitors can view various aircraft close up, including a KLM Boeing 747 and Soviet-era MiG-21 fighter jet.

The Civil Aviation Authority is expected to start an investigation into the crash as soon as all patients have been cleared from the scene.
