Rebels kill Sudan official in border state: SUNA
KHARTOUM (Reuters) – Rebels killed a Sudanese state official and seven other people in the oil-producing border state of South Kordofan, the state news agency said on Friday, the most senior official to be killed since fighting began in the region a year ago.
Sudan’s border regions with South Sudan have been mired in violence since the southern nation seceded a year ago under a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war.
Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes in South Kordofan and nearby Blue Nile state since the fighting broke out, the United Nations has said.
