KHARTOUM - Sudanese insurgents are obstructing a deal to deliver much-needed aid into areas under their control in two Sudanese states where almost a million people have been forced from their homes, the UN aid chief said on Thursday.

The United Nations has been trying to get aid into South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, where Sudan's army has been fighting the Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-North) for almost two years.

Both states are in Khartoum-ruled Sudan, from which the new nation of South Sudan broke away in 2011 under a peace deal which ended decades of civil war. South Sudan adjoins both South Kordofan and Blue Nile.
