Bombs kill 5 in South Sudan: Doctor
Rubkona: A doctor says five
people were killed in bombings on strategic locations in South Sudan`s Unity State.
Peter Gatkuoth, medical director of Bentiu Hospital, says
four civilians and a soldier were killed today.
Jets released six bombs. They targeted a bridge that
links Bentiu to a road into Sudan. They also hit an airstrip
just minutes after a UN humanitarian plane left.
Fighting along the north-south border has been near
constant over the past two weeks.
Troops from South Sudan on Wednesday captured the
oil-rich border town of Heglig, claimed by Sudan.
Fighting erupted in the disputed region of Abyei between
Sudan and South Sudan May of last year, just months before
South Sudan formally declared independence.
The fighting has displaced more than 100,000 people.
