A South Sudanese government official said Sudan was bombing facilities at the disputed Heglig oilfield and causing heavy damage after South Sudanese troops took control of the region.
“They are bombing the central processing facility and the tanks to rubble as we speak,” South Sudan’s Information Minister Barnaba Marial Benjamin told reporters in Juba.

There was no immediate comment from Sudanese officials, Reuters reports.
