SOUTH KORDOFAN, Sudan (Morning Star News) — The Sudanese Air Force dropped bombs targeting civilian populated areas in South Kordofan, Sudan this week, killing a Christian man and injuring a 13-year-old girl, an area source said. As part of what area Christians believe is President Omar al-Bashir’s campaign to rid the country of Christianity and the ethnic Nuba people, a government jet Feb. 10 dropped three bombs on Damardago village, killing a Christian identified only as 30-year-old Timotuos, the source said. Sudan has ramped up bombings in the past few months; the 93 bombs dropped on civilian areas in December was more than the those of October and November combined, according to online news portal Nuba Reports. In January Sudan dropped at least 120 bombs on civilian populations, according to Nuba Reports, run by aid worker Ryan Boyette, who remained in South Kordofan after his Christian humanitarian organization was forced to evacuate when military conflict escalated in 2011.
