Republic Of South Sudan Independence, South Sudan said on Monday Sudanese forces were still bombing regions in the oil-producing area straddling their border, but insisted it would not be dragged into war.

South Sudan’s Information Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin accused Khartoum of wanting to deter investment in the crucial oil sector of the country that split from the north in July.

Western nations fear the latest border clashes could escalate to a full-blown civil war between the mainly Muslim north and the South where most have either Christian or animist beliefs.

“For the last month, the Republic of Sudan in Khartoum has been bombing mostly the Unity state and our oil fields. For the last month, they’ve been bombing villages and small towns and as we speak today they are still continuing bombing some of these areas,” Benjamin told reporters in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

“They are still continuing at random all over Unity State, of course the purpose also is (to) sabotage the investment in oil,” he said.
