U.S. Urged To Send SAMs To S. Sudan
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has been urged to ship anti-aircraft
batteries to South Sudan.
A former senior U.S. official said South Sudan required urgent
assistance to repel the daily air strikes by Sudan. Former U.S. special
envoy to Sudan Andrew Natsios said U.S. air defense batteries to Juba would
force the Khartoum regime of Sudanese President Omar Bashir to negotiate
with the south.
