  • Description

    INTRODUCTION The commander of Sudan's southern army has been speaking about the armed attempt last month to take over the airport at Juba, the south's capital. Major-General Joseph Lagu called a news conference last Monday (7 March) to accuse outside forces of engineering the attack on February the second, and of trying to cause unrest in the southern Sudan, which ended 1 17-year-long civil war with the north five years ago.

    SYNOPSIS: Eight soldiers and two foreign workers were killed when Sudanese Air Force personnel tried to take over the airport. The attack was put down by loyal army forces. Major Lagu compared the organisers of the attack to "a dirty man".
