According to reports received from Kadugli, four shells fell in different parts of the city: one in Kadugli market, the second nearby the headquarters of Popular Defence Forces, the third fell between buildings of the state radio and a school and the fourth landed near the branch of Bank of Sudan.

A woman was killed by a shell that hit Kadugli market while an employee at the radio station was injured by another bomb.

The attack coincided with the launch of a conference on peace in South Kordofan today attended by leading political figures from the ruling National Congress Party and political parties participating in the national coalition.

Presidential assistant, and deputy chairman of the ruing party, Nafie Ali Nafie, was supposed to attend the conference but he dispatched NCP political secretary Hassabo Mohamed Abdel Rahman to represent him.

There is no claim of responsibility for Monday’s mortar attack on Kadguli, but the Sudanese army have been fighting the outlawed Sudan People’s Liberation Movement – North (SPLM-N) in the region since June 2011.

    The unannounced results of NIF’ investigations into the downing of its Antonov over Talodi is a living evident that NIF’ Malitiamen opposed to Peace and the Rights for Nuba people were the ones who carried out this Mortar Attack on Civilian targets. The objectives are clear, they want to blackmail SPLM-N. It is the last NIF malicious tactics, but people know all NIF criminal party evil motives.

    Sudanese people must take the black history of the NIF’Junta as a good educator. These are few hinds of NIF’ history; 1 execution methodolised on throwing civilians and opponents out in mid-air. 2 painting its Gunships and Antonov bombers with UN Coat of Arm and Logo for military missions. 3 downing its own planes and use it as a smear campaign against resistance armed movements. 4 using religion

    Hell is coming because that was only the beginning of the matter,Kadguli with Ahamed Haroun as a governor will be like Syria or more worse then that in near future, so when you talk of peace remember to talk about the rejection of Ahamed Haroun as the governor
