Armed conflict results in hundreds killed in Sudan

Over 700 fighters attacked the city of Teludi but were repelled by Sudanese forces. Hundreds of soldiers and officers were killed in clashes with the Sudanese army in South Kordofan state.

South Kordofan is an oil-producing state and the scene of frequent armed clashes. South Kordofan remained under Khartoum's northern administration when South Sudan became independent in July, but violent clashes since June have pitted Nuba rebels once allied to southern rebels against the Sudanese army.
