Sudan: Shelling in South Kordofan, 1 killed
Khartoum: Shelling broke out in the Kadugli town in South Kordofan on Monday as people in the area were forced to take shelter, as per BBC report.
One woman was reportedly killed while three others were injured in the shelling.
The shelling took place close to the border with South Sudan, which seceded in 2011. Soon after the bombardment, the United Nations moved its staff to a safer location.
South Kordofan has been witnessing clashes between rebels and the Army since last year. However, the Kadugli has managed to remain peaceful.
The rebels have taken responsibility for the shelling claiming that the attack was in response to strikes on their locations, according to reports.
While authorities blamed South Sudan for providing aids to the rebels, the charges have been denied by South Sudan.
