UNITED NATIONS — The United Nations confirmed Tuesday that six bombs had been dropped inside South Sudan. That government has accused rival Sudan of staging an air raid.

South Sudan canceled planned talks with Khartoum government representatives after accusing its neighbor of carrying out the raid Friday.

“The mission has verified that six bombs were dropped” just south of the disputed frontier between the two countries, U.N. spokesman Eduardo del Buey told reporters.

The United Nations said the bombs were dropped about 11/2 miles south of the unofficial border, which has never been legally set since the two countries split in July last year. The spokesman did not say who was behind the attack.
