U.N. confirms deaths in Darfur bombing raid (or constructing left cover to cut China out of 10% of their oil and justifying Africom while ignoring the atrocities of the Oppenheimer De Beers diamond racket in West Africa)

KHARTOUM (Reuters) – A bomb attack by Sudanese government planes on a town in southern Darfur killed and wounded civilians, peacekeepers said on Sunday in the first independent verification of civilian fatalities. The joint U.N./African Union UNAMID force said it did not know how many were killed when the jet fighter dropped at least two bombs on rebel-held Muhajiriya on Saturday. Sudan’s armed forces were not available for comment. Air attacks in Darfur are forbidden under a 2006 peace deal and U.N. Security Council resolutions. The raid followed more than a week of clashes and air attacks in and around the south Darfur town that have amounted to some of the worst violence in a year, said analysts. The clashes have also added to tension in the build-up to an expected ruling from the International Criminal Court on whether to issue an arrest warrant against Sudan’s president on charges of war crimes in Darfur.
