SUDAN BOMBS AID GROUP HOSPITAL

    KHARTOUM (CWNews.com) - Sudanese government warplanes dropped bombs on a missionary hospital in southern Sudan on Tuesday, killing two people and injuring several others.

    The Voice of Martyrs, which sponsored the hospital in southern Sudan where rebels of the mainly Christian and animist south are fighting a decades-long civil war against the mainly Islamic north, said about a dozen bombs fell in the area of the hospital. Tombek Marcello Daniel, who works for Far Reaching Ministries in the region, was one of the two people killed.

    The VOM hospital was the third medical facility bombed by Sudanese warplanes this month, in addition to a Christian school where several children were seriously injured when bombs were dropped there. Khartoum Bishop Max Gassis said after that bombing that the radical Sudanese Islamic government was targeting civilians to inflame sentiment against rebels.
