We are aware of the deeply troubling reports of bombings in Kauda, Sudan on 25 May. The recent escalation of fighting in the Two Areas of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile is extremely concerning and we will continue to press both the Government of Sudan and the SPLM-North (Sudan People's Liberation Movement - North) for an end to military action.
