Sudan Accused Of Bombing Civilians In Kordofan

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch say Sudanese planes have been terrorizing civilians in the Nuba mountains region of Southern Kordofan. Researchers from the two human rights groups managed to sneak into the region recently to document what they say have been ongoing and indiscriminate air strikes in the region. Sudan claims that the newly independent country of South Sudan is fomenting unrest in Kordofan. Human Rights groups say there is an armed conflict in the region, but that doesn't excuse attacks on civilians.
