JUBA, Sudan — Arab tribesman killed 10 people and wounded 18 as they attacked a bus carrying southern Sudanese traveling from the country's north to their home region, which is holding an independence referendum, an official said Tuesday.

A leader of the Misseriya tribe, whose members are mostly nomadic cattle herders and which was blamed for the violence, denied there was an attack.

The south's Minister of Internal Affairs Maj. Gen. Gier Chuang Aluong said the attack happened Monday in South Kordofan, north of Sudan's north-south divide. More than 140,000 southerners who have lived in the north have streamed back to the south since October — initially in order to participate in the referendum though some are now fleeing out of fear of northern retribution.
