ADDIS ABABA - South Sudan on Sunday accused Sudan of bombing the oil-producing area straddling the two countries' borders as talks aimed at ending the worst hostilities since Juba declared its independence were delayed.

Sudan's army denied the accusations, however, saying no military operation had been conducted on Sunday following a series of clashes between the two armies in the contested border region in recent days.

"The government of Sudan attacked Manga today at two in the morning," Pagan Amum, head of South Sudan's negotiating team, told reporters in Addis Ababa where the African Union is trying to restart talks between the neighbours.

"Panakuach, also in Unity State, has been subjected to aerial bombardment today, including attacks by helicopter gunship," he said. "As we speak, Sudan is bombing South Sudan."
