News and Films From Sudan’s Frontline (Beta)


Make it news

Journalists are banned from the Nuba mountains. This makes it extremely difficult for International media to cover the war and it’s impact on civilians. Nuba Reports brings together local journalists with professional editors and mentors in order to produce verifiable and compelling dispatches from the front lines.
But for the model to work, we need your help. Make this hidden conflict visible. Make it news.

About us

Fighting broke out in June 2011 between Sudan’s government and Nuban rebels. Nuba Reports was founded by people living in the region after journalists and NGOs were banned. Our goal is to provide Sudan and the International community with credible and compelling dispatches from the front lines of this conflict and to illuminate the war’s impact on civilians. more

Nine civilians were killed and 13 injured in two separate attacks yesterday. These bombings occurred the same day negotiations began in Addis Ababa between representatives of SPLM-N and the Sudan Government.

At 9:00am a Sudan Su-24 jet dropped 12 bombs in Um Dullu village of Um Dorian county.  A Nuba Reports’ journalist spoke with Bashir Sahibe, a 30 year old shop owner in Um Dullu, who witnessed the account. 11 of the 13 wounded were severely injured.

Again at 3:40pm in Tabanya, Nuba Reports’ journalist Ahmed Khatir witnessed yesterday’s second attack. The jet dropped 9 bombs at the Tabanya Primary school. The Su-24 jet then circled back, dropping an additional 9 bombs in a pasture killing 13 cows.  Ahmed described jets dropping a group of 3 bombs attached to one parachute.  Ahmed said the two smaller bombs separated from the parachute and exploded before the larger detonated on impact. One of the bombs in Tabanya did not explode. It appears to be a Russian-made RBK 500kg bomb.

The bombings are the latest assault leading up the meetings in Addis. Earlier this week 27 parachute bombs were dropped within two days in the Buram and Heiban counties of South Kordofan.
