North Sudan Bombed Southern Army in Northern Oil State, UN Says

June 10 (Bloomberg) -- Fighting between Sudanese government forces and Southern Sudan’s army in the north’s only oil-producing state has displaced as many as 40,000 of the estimated 60,000 people in the Southern Kordofan state capital, the United Nations said today.

The clashes included aerial bombardment by Sudanese Armed Forces in several parts of Southern Kordofan state, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said in an e-mailed statement.

Large-scale looting of properties including of UN and humanitarian agencies continued in Kadugli, the state capital, even after northern Sudanese forces declared they were in control of the town, according to the statement.
