Report from Eyes and Ears team - Nuba mountains, Sudan
February 18, 2012 - 8:00am
Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) in Toroji attacked the SPLM-N in the village of Angolo. Many more Nuba civilians are displaced. SPLM-N repelled the attack and still control the region of Angolo. The SAF soldiers returned to Toroji. The fear is that SAF is trying to control the road from Nuba to Yida. In which case IDPs would not have the ability to access Yida refugee camp.

Antonov Bombed the village of Angolo. Four women were wounded. One woman had a bad lung injury. The SPLM-N drove the wounded women 6 hours on a rough road to the only surgeon in the region. It is my fear that the woman with the lung injury did not make the drive alive. No SPLM-N soldiers were wounded or killed in this bombing. Only civilians were injured.
