JUBA: South Sudan today accused Sudan of bombing its side of their volatile border, killing one soldier and wounding four others in what it said was the third attack on its northeastern Renk County since November.
Sudan’s army spokesman al-Sawarmi Khalid denied the accusations, as it has each time South Sudan has alleged an attack.
Reuters reporters have witnessed several air strikes against South Sudan since it seceded from Sudan in 2011.
The African neighbours have been at loggerheads over oil, territory and other disputes and came close to war in April.
Neither has implemented a deal signed in September calling for the creation of a buffer zone and resumption of oil exports.
