Sudanese Foreign ministry spokesman Ali Al-Sadig told Reuters Friday, "The first thought is that it was the Americans that did it. We contacted the Americans and they categorically denied they were involved. We are still trying to verify it. Most probably it involved Israel."
"We didn't know about the first attack until after the second one. They were in an area close to the border with Egypt, a remote area, desert, with no towns, no people," he added.
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in a speech last Thursday, "Israel operates wherever it is possible to harm terror infrastructure, near and far," but did not comment on the Sudan attack specifically.
