Sudanese rebels shell oil state capital
Sudanese rebels shelled the capital of the country's main oil state on Tuesday, witnesses and the insurgents said, in retaliation for government air strikes. Sudanese television reported five civilians were killed in the shelling.

 

Fighting has raged across Sudan's South Kordofan state since June last year, when rebels and government forces started clashing shortly before South Sudan declared independence. (Reuters)
