Bombs hit school, kill 13 in Darfur

May 06, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Sudanese government bombs have hit a primary school and a busy marketplace in the Darfur region, killing at least 13 people, including seven children, two aid organizations said.

The Sudanese army was not immediately available to comment but has repeatedly denied bombing in the area, which would be a violation of a United Nations Security Council resolution banning all offensive flying.

The aid groups said a government Antonov plane bombed the village of Shegeg Karo in North Darfur on Sunday.
