Nairobi - An internal United Nations report has found that six bombs dropped by Sudan's military landed inside neighboring South Sudan despite Sudan's insistence that the bombs landed in its own territory.

The report, obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, was prepared by a UN team that visited the site. It found that six bombs landed about 1.16km inside South Sudan territory on Friday, killing one man.

South Sudan and Sudan are negotiating outstanding issues from their peaceful split last year. The two sides have not agreed on where the border is in some places and on how to share oil revenues.

The bombings by Sudan were the first such incidents since April, when violence brought the two nations to the brink of war.
