Sudan Government 'bombs town'
Rebels in southern Sudan say government forces have bombed the town of Malual-Kan, the centre for a number of international aid agencies operating in the area.

A spokesman for the Sudan People's Liberation Army, Samson Kwaje, said four people were killed as they walked through a Medecin sans Frontiers compound on their way to church; five others were injured.

The rebel spokesman said the SPLA has no military presence in Malual-Kan.

There has been no word from the Sudanese Government on the reported bombing, which comes days after the two sides began talks in the Kenyan capital Nairobi to end the long-running civil war.
