UNITED NATIONS - The UN Security Council reprimanded Sudan and South Sudan on Tuesday for repeated cross-border clashes that were fueling tensions over oil exports and territory disputes and had become "a serious threat to international peace and security."

South Sudan declared independence last year after voting overwhelmingly for secession in a referendum, part of a 2005 peace deal to end decades of civil war. But the peace remains uneasy at best, with north and south accusing each other of waging proxy wars in states along their ill-defined frontier.

The council expressed in a statement "grave concern about reports of repeated incidents of cross-border violence... including troop movements, support to proxy forces, and aerial bombardments, and views the situation as a serious threat to international peace and security."
