JUBA, Sudan — Three bomb attacks in Southern Sudan this month made by aircraft from the northern Sudanese military violated Sudan's 2005 peace agreement, a joint north-south committee has concluded, a United Nations spokesman said Thursday.

A committee with representatives from the UN mission in Sudan and the northern and southern Sudanese militaries found that the bombings violated the agreement that ended more than 20 years of civil war, UN spokesman Kouider Zerrouk said.The bombings in western Bahr el Ghazal state happened Dec. 6, Dec. 8 and Dec. 9. No casualties were reported, but they follow multiple bombing runs by the north in November in a disputed region on the border between neighboring northern Bahr el Ghazal state and southern Darfur state.
