A clarification on a previous report. An SPLA spokesman confirmed that a Sudanese government (Khartoum) force had taken an SPLA-occupied town in Unity State. The town is now identified as Mankin (which is near a major oilfield). There have been several small actions in the area for the past month, with government forces conducting what appear to be local offensives intended to push SPLA forces away from the oilfields. Note that this is occurring as Khartoum and the SPLA are conducting a new round of peace negotiations.
