|Sudan||GOVERNMENT BOMBS TARGET CHURCH||
A Catholic church was the target for an attack by government forces in the country's south, according to a statement by SPLA rebels. The mainly Christian SPLA rebels in southern Sudan have fought a 15-year insurgency for autonomy from the Arab, Muslim-dominated government in the north.
Sudanese aircraft bombed two towns in southern Sudan, killing three people and seriously injuring another seven, Sudanese rebels said Tuesday. An Antonov aircraft dropped 14 bombs last week on Yei, 100 miles southwest of Juba, the largest remaining government-held town in the south, the main rebel group said in a statement. The attack on Sunday killed a woman and injured six other people, it said.
