Sudan Accuses Ethiopia of Arming Rebels

The two countries have been at loggerheads for a while, beginning with how Ethiopia's Grand Renaissance Dam (GERD) on the Blue Nile, was to be filled. This was followed by a disagreement over an unmarked border line in al-Fashaqa, with Khartoum claiming that Ethiopia invaded its territory. Khartoum is now accusing Addis Ababa of arming rebels in its territory. Officials in Sudan said Ethiopia has provided "logistical support" to rebel groups led by Joseph Tuka in the southern state of Blue Nile. The Ethiopian government has denied these allegations
