Sudan’s Army Strikes Darfur by Air for Second Time in Week

The Sudanese army attacked a village by air yesterday in the western region of Darfur, leaving possible casualties, the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission said today. It was the second air attack in a week on areas of Darfur.

A peacekeeping team “will attempt to collect information on possible casualties and newly displaced persons” resulting from the air strike, which took place in the village of Sukamir in North Darfur state, the mission, known as Unamid, said in an e-mailed statement.
