This satellite imagery shows that the Government of Sudan has bombarded ten towns and villages in the Nuba Mountains region of South Kordofan.

DigitalGlobe satellite imagery captured on June 28 shows four fixed-wing aircraft, including one plane consistent with an Antonov and two SU-25K Frogfoot ground attack aircraft, and five helicopters, including four Mi-24 Hind gunships -- attack helicopters of the kind reportedly used by SAF in combat operations in Darfur and Abyei -- at SAF's El Obeid airbase.
