Sudan accuses Chad of bombing raids

KHARTOUM, May 15 (Reuters) - Sudan on Friday accused its neighbour Chad of launching two bombing raids on its territory, describing the attacks as "an act of war".

"They attacked. They bombed and there were casualties," said Ali Youssef Ahmed, head of protocol at Sudan’s Foreign Ministry.

"This was an act of war from Chad. The Sudanese leadership and the Sudanese army are assessing the situation. Sudan has the right to defend its territory"
