Sudan's South Kordofan fighting: 'Mass graves found'

Satellite images show mass graves following recent fighting in Sudan, a campaign group set up by Hollywood star George Clooney says.
Eyewitnesses who spoke to the group said soldiers had systematically massacred civilians in South Kordofan.
Fighting began in the state last month, between rebels from the Nuba mountains and the Sudanese armed forces.
A Sudanese military spokesman denied allegations that civilians had been killed.
South Kordofan borders South Sudan, which last week became an independent state.
Some 70,000 people have fled the recent fighting there.
