Sudan denied that its warplanes had bombarded northern Uganda and said such claims harmed an agreement to normalise relations signed earlier this month.

The Ugandan Defence Minister, Amama Mbabazi, said earlier that two Sudanese MiG planes on Sunday dropped bombs, aimed at an army barracks in the north- western town of Moyo, 10 miles south of Sudan's border, but which missed their target. "We shall not sit back and watch while our territory continues to be violated. We shall soon respond appropriately," he warned. Under an agreement mediated by Iran, the two agreed to work to halt activity by border rebels. Reuter - Khartoum
