JUBA, Dec 19 (Reuters) - A passenger plane blocked the runaway at the airport in South Sudan's capital Juba on Thursday but no casualties were immediately reported, witnesses said.

An image showed the plane with its nose on a runway after its front undercarriage collapsed. It was not immediately clear which airline operated the plane.

The incident could hamper international evacuation efforts from the conflict in the country.
