Sudan Army denies bombing South Sudan refugee camp

Aid workers in the Yida camp said military aircraft crossed the border and dropped bombs on Thursday in and around the camp.



Khartoum: Sudan`s military is denying that its forces bombed a refugee camp across the border in South Sudan.

Aid workers in the Yida camp and officials in South Sudan said military aircraft crossed the border and dropped bombs on Thursday in and around the camp. There were no casualties. The site is home to thousands of people who fled violence to the north in Sudan.

Sudan`s military spokesman, Sawarmy Khalid, said on Saturday that the accusations were based on "on erroneous information”. He said the Sudanese Army has no operations in the area. His statement was posted on the Army`s website.
South Sudan became independent in July, but there are fears of another war between the two sides because of lingering disputes over issues like border demarcation and the sharing of oil revenues.
