New rebel Nuba movement in South Kordofan targeting oilfields

(AlRai AlAam)

A group of people from the Nuba Mountains, headed by Dr. Juma al Wakeel, yesterday said they have established a new armed group under the name of “The Central Movement for the Liberation of Sudan – Nuba Mountains Region”.

Al Wakeel said to AlRai AlAam yesterday that the movement's main targets are the oilfields and Government institutions. He said the movement is based now at a triangle at Kordofan-Darfur borders.

The movement calls for self-rule in the Nuba Mountains. We are against the CPA, said al Wakeel. Al Wakeel does not rule out coordination between his movement and Darfur rebels.
