SAF rebuffs report of Agok bombardment

19 June, 2011 (UNMIS MMR)

Al-Rai Al-Aam – SAF Spokesperson Al-Suwarmi Khaled has described as “baseless” recent UN reports of a SAF bombardment near Agok, south of the Abyei area. He pointed out that the SAF has nothing to do with the issue and has no call to carry out such action.

He also rebuffed statements to Reuters by UNMIS Spokesperson Kouider Zerrouk in which the latter reportedly said that the UN strongly condemns the detention by the SAF of 4 peacekeepers in Kadugli. Al-Suwarmi said that the SAF has no enmity with the UN and in fact provides protection and facilitates their mission in the country.
