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

The past three days have seen a flurry of bombings in South Kordofan, just as talks between rebel leaders and government officials are set to begin in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Nuba Reports journalists have counted 27 bombs dropped by Sudanese aircraft in 6 separate attacks. The bombs fell in Heiban County – the most populous of the rebel-controlled counties – and Buram County – which contains the road to South Sudan’s Yida refugee camp.

Two people were killed when nine bombs were dropped on Dar village in Buram County. One victim was 13 year-old girl. The attack was carried out in Sudan’s new Belarus-supplied Sukhoi-24 fighter jets. A 26 year-old man was badly burned in the attack and remains in critical condition. The bombing in Dar was the second of three bombings on February 10. The other three attacks occurred on February 9.

The bombings come just two days before representatives from the Government and the SPLM-North meet in the Ethiopian capital to discuss humanitarian access into Blue Nile and South Kordofan states.

The two sides previously reached an agreement with the African Union in August of 2012 – known as the Tripartite Agreement – to assess humanitarian needs in the regions and provide access corridors for aid. The agreement was never implemented and the two sides have not held serious discussions since.
