WASHINGTON - The United States accused Sudan's government on Thursday of carrying out air strikes on civilians in the restive border states of Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile and said the attacks were compounding a crisis in the two areas.

Humanitarian groups have accused Khartoum of carrying out a series of bombing raids on civilians, including one last month on a refugee camp that wounded one boy and left 14 people missing.

In the latest incident, Samaritan's Purse, a Christian relief organization, said a Bible school in the Nuba Mountains was bombed. Two buildings were destroyed but the organization said no one was hurt.

Sudan's government has repeatedly denied carrying out bombing attacks on civilians.
