Sudan regrets recent Aweil bombings

Author : | Published: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The Sudanese government has expressed regret for the killing of four civilians in an air raid in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State last week.

Sudanese war planes dropped up to 20 bombs in Aweil West County over three days, killing the four victims and wounding nine others. They also bombed parts of Western Bahr el-Ghazal.

In its first response, the Sudanese government said it was pursuing the SPLM North rebels.

But the Charge De Affairs at the Sudanese embassy in Juba, Majdi Ahmed Elmofadil, told Eye Radio this afternoon that the two countries should address their concerns through the cooperation agreements.

“Therefore, we are expressing our regret for killing of those victims,” Amb Ahmed told Eye Radio.

“Therefore we are hoping that the leadership of the two countries are able to handle this issue so that the border between the two countries can enjoy mutual benefit and joint interest.”

The response comes a day after the ministry of foreign affairs summoned ambassador Majdi to protest the bombing.
