Sudan rebel offensive to disrupt elections: spokesman

Sudan People's Liberation Army-North soldiers walk in Mufalu, South Kordofan state, on April 6, 2012, in southern SudanSudanese insurgents said Friday they had launched an offensive in war-torn South Kordofan to try to disrupt nationwide elections due next month, which the army said it repelled. The Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North launched “lightning operations” against garrisons in Kalogi, Tusi and Rahmaniya towns in the south and east of the region Thursday, spokesman Arnu Lodi said in a statement. The goal was to integrate “the various means of struggle, armed uprising and civil disobedience, to work together to stop the elections” due in April, Lodi said. President Omar al-Bashir has been battling an insurgency in South Kordofan and neighbouring Blue Nile states since 2011, when the SPLA-N mounted a revolt, complaining of being marginalised by his Arab-dominated government.
