KHARTOUM, Sudan —

A Sudanese official says a military factory in the capital which Khartoum claims was bombed by Israel will be relocated away from residential areas.

Khartoum governor Abdul Rahman al-Khedr was quoted Sunday by the official SUNA news agency as saying authorities have located a new site and began steps to move the factory. He said the alleged strike will not weaken Sudan's resolve to be militarily self-sufficient.

Israel has not commented on last month's explosion that killed four people. Military analysts say it does appear to be an Israeli attack, and a U.S.-based monitoring group has said satellite imagery suggests it was an airstrike.

Israeli officials say that Iran ships arms through Sudan to its regional adversaries. Sudan has denied any Iranian connection to the factory's production.
