KHARTOUM - Sudanese government forces are killing civilians in rebel-held border areas with indiscriminate bombardments that include improvised "barrel bombs" filled with nails and jagged metal, Human Rights Watch said on Wednesday.

A senior member of the Arab-African country's ruling party dismissed the report as "completely incorrect."

Rebellion broke out in the South Kordofan state in June last year - just before South Sudan seceded under a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war between the north and south - and spread to Blue Nile state in October.

Hundreds of thousands of people have since fled their homes in the two states.
