South Sudan Refugee Camp Bombing

Tensions are high between the Sudan and South Sudan, after Sudan majorly escalated the ongoing conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile by bombing a refugee camp in South Sudan. The camp was home to residents of the two embattled states who had fled the recent conflict.

Sudan denies carrying out the aerial attack on the Yida camp, in Unity state, just over the border from South Kordofan and Blue Nile. BBC Correspondent James Copnall was actually present at the camp at the time of the bombing and reported at least 12 people were killed and over 20 injured, many seriously.
