Sudan accuses South Sudan of entering Darfur

May 3 - 2012 Khartoum

On Wednesday the Sudanese government accused South Sudan of entering Kafen Dabi, Kafiye Kenji and Garya in Darfur, bordering Bahr El Arab.

Foreign Affairs spokesman El Obeid Ahmed Marawih told reporters in Khartoum that the Sudan Peoples Liberation Army occupied Garya in Bahr El Arab north of the 1956 border and moved into the two other areas on Sunday.

South Sudan's military spokesman Philip Aguer denied the accusations saying the army has not entered Darfur or Sudanese territory.

Aguer said the army has been chasing the Lord's Resistance Army and Sudanese militias in Bahr al Ghazal, South Sudan.
