Satellite images suggest airstrike on Sudan site
Cairo: A US monitoring group says satellite images of the aftermath of an explosion at a Sudanese weapons factory suggest the site was hit by an airstrike.
The Sudanese government has accused Israel of bombing its Yarmouk military complex in Khartoum, killing two people and leaving the factory in ruins.
The images released by the Satellite Sentinel Project to The Associated Press on Saturday showed several 52-foot (16-meter) wide craters. A spokesman for the project, Jonathan Hutson, said military experts found the craters to be "consistent with large impact craters created by air-delivered munitions."
Israeli officials have neither confirmed nor denied striking the site, instead accusing Sudan of playing a role in an Iranian-backed network of arms shipments to Hamas and Hezbollah.
