JUBA - The United States is urging Sudanese rebels to stop recruiting soldiers from among children and other civilians in refugee camps across the border in South Sudan, a US official said on Wednesday.

Fighting in Sudan's southern border states has raged for more than a year, complicating peace talks with newly-independent South Sudan and prompting aid agencies to warn of an impending humanitarian catastrophe in the region.

Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes in Sudan's South Kordofan and Blue Nile states since clashes between government forces and the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Movement North (SPLM-N) broke out over a year ago.
