      Refugees wait in line to receive packages of food that had been air-dropped by the World Food Programme (WFP) the previous day, in Yida camp, South Sudan.

      Newly arrived refugees at the camp along the volatile South Sudan-Sudan border say renewed fighting between rebels and Sudan's military is likely to send thousands more people to the expanding camp there filled with refugees of war and hunger. (AP)
    The Sudanese government bombed its own people in a crowded marketplace Thursday morning, witnesses told, even as the rogue nation's president met in Ethiopia for peace talks.

    A witness told the attack on a bustling bazaar that killed one civilian and injured six others was just the latest in a series of attacks on poverty-stricken villages by the rogue regime of President Omar al-Bashir. Wanted for war crimes and genocide for his troops' actions in Darfur, al-Bashir has mounted a campaign of terror against his own people in the years before the southern portion of the North African country seceded a year ago.

    The attack came even as al-Bashir, who is wanted for genocide by the International Criminal Court, and his South Sudan counterpart, Salva Kiir, were meeting in Ethiopia to reach a deal to allow oil to flow across the vague border separating the nations, which were divided last year amid an ongoing and bloody civil war. The agreement, signed on Thursday in Addis Ababa, will allow South Sudan to send its oil to market using Sudanese pipelines. More importantly, it could establish a demilitarized buffer zone in the rugged boundary between the two nations where allegiances don't comport with a map. But even as they met, al-Bashir's bombing raid was aimed at rooting out South Sudanese - and mainly Christian - sympathizers residing on his side of the border.

    "I am sure the Sudan government knew that it was [m]arket day in Heiban and that is why they bombed it."

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.
