Foreign Minister Ali Ahmad Karti accused Israel on Wednesday of an air strike a day earlier on a car on Sudan's Red Sea coast that killed two people.

"From yesterday, we have indications that the attack was carried out by Israel. We are absolutely sure of this," Karti told a news conference in Khartoum.

The minister said he did not know the reason for the attack, but that in recent days "there have been allegations from Israel that Sudan is supporting some Islamic groups."

"This is not true. When Israel makes these allegations, it is trying to justify what it did yesterday."

In response to a question, Karti said he did not know the identities of the people who had been killed. He said they were just Sudanese citizens traveling from the airport.
