Air strike on Sudan convoy killed 119: state media - Yahoo! News
Sudanese officials told Reuters at the time they suspected Israel, which was at the time engaged in an offensive in the Gaza Strip, with the declared aim of halting rocket attacks on Israel by Palestinian militants.

The United States denied any involvement while Israeli officials refused to confirm or deny their planes or unmanned drones took part.

At the time, estimates of the death toll from the attack ranged from 30 to 40.

"(The minister) disclosed that 119 people were killed; among them were 56 smugglers and 63 smuggled persons from Ethiopian, Somali and other nationalities," read the report.
