Sudanese Army Denies Its Aircraft Bombed Sites in South Sudan

Sudan’s army said it didn’t conduct air strikes in South Sudan after its neighbor accused it of bombings in the country’s northwest that killed four people.

“Sudanese military jets don’t enter the airspace of any foreign country without permission,” army spokesman al-Sawarmi Khaled said by phone from Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.

South Sudan on Wednesday said Sudanese aircraft bombed four areas in Northern Bahr el Ghazal state, causing the fatalities and injuring nine other people. Similar air raids occurred in Raga county in Western Bahr el Ghazal on April 7, local Commissioner James Marodama said by phone. No casualties were reported.
