Sudan bombs hospital in Kordofan

17 June 2014, 16:12

Khartoum - Sudanese air force bombs have hit a Doctors Without Borders hospital in war-torn South Kordofan, the group said Tuesday, in the second incident of its kind in weeks.

"As bombs struck the village of Farandalla on June 16, two hit the MSF [Medecins sans Frontieres] hospital there. Five people were wounded in the village and one MSF staff member was injured at the hospital," the international aid group said in a statement.

In early May the United States and Canada said they were "appalled" by an air raid which Sudanese forces reportedly carried out near a church-run hospital in Kordofan.

They said a number of bombs were reportedly dropped by Sudan's air force near the Mother of Mercy Catholic Hospital in South Kordofan's Nuba Mountains, which have born the brunt of the three-year-old war.

Some people were injured.

Sudan's military said that incident did not occur.

Like the 11-year-old war in Sudan's western Darfur region, the Kordofan conflict has been fuelled by complaints among non-Arab groups of neglect and discrimination by the Arab-dominated regime.
