NAIROBI (Reuters) - Sudan rebels
accused the government on Thursday of bombing a camp housing thousands
of war-displaced civilians, in violation of a special truce agreed by both
sides in their 17-year-old civil war.
George Garang, spokesman for the main
rebel group, the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA), said government
warplanes bombed the camp near the southern town of Ikotos on Wednesday.
''We believe there were a number of casualties,
but we are still assessing the damage,'' Garang told Reuters.
''Thirty bombs were dropped in two sorties.
