The great news: A Sudanese military had been defeated outside Heglig
can South Sudan liberate Southern Kordofan, Blue Nile state and other non "Arabic" areas in Sudan? http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa...519995118.html
A Sudanese military spokesman told the BBC its forces had been defeated outside Heglig, and retreated north.
South Sudan said its forces had advanced to Heglig, but stopped short of saying its forces actually controlled the oil fields.
Col Khalid Sawarmi, the spokesman for the Sudan Armed Forces, said: "Now the [soldiers] from South Sudan they are inside Heglig city, and the oilfield, they conquered the Sudanese army outside of Heglig.
"The South Sudanese attacked our Sudanese army in Heglig, as you know Heglig is not part of South Sudan," he continued.
