(Reuters) – Sudan’s armed forces clashed with rebels in the oil-producing border state of South Kordofan, the two sides said on Thursday, both claiming victory over the other. Violence has racked Sudan’s border regions with South Sudan since around the time the southern nation seceded a year ago under a 2005 peace deal that ended decades of civil war. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled their homes in South Kordofan and the nearby Blue Nile state since the fighting broke out, the United Nations has said.
