JUBA, South Sudan – South Sudan's government is accusing Sudan of bombing two places within its territory this week, killing at least one soldier and wounding others.
Peter Hoth, a state minister for information, said Wednesday that a suspected Sudanese warplane bombed Maban and Renk counties of Upper Nile state on Sunday and Monday.
Hoth said one soldier was killed in Renk, near the border of Sudan, and others wounded.
South Sudan's army spokesman, Col. Philip Aguer, confirmed the death and said nine other soldiers were wounded.
In April South, Sudan accused Sudan of bombing its Northern Bahr al Ghazal state, killing four.
South Sudan broke away from Sudan in 2011 following decades of armed struggle and a peace agreement but border skirmishes have continued.
