Sudan: August 31, 2002


On 30 August, the Sudanese Air Force dropped an unconfirmed number of bombs on the villages of Isoke and Hiyala, in East Equatoria (Southern Sudan). This succeeded in stampeding the population into the bush. The Sudanese army claims that Hiyala (only 25km from the government stronghold at Torit) is still a rebel base, but the Catholic news agency MISNA claims that the village only hosts a displaced persons camp, assisted in the past by a Norwegian NGO and currently closely followed by the World Food Program. - Adam Geibel
