Sudan army seizes Darfur rebel bastion, kills 160: Officials

Officials say that clashes between Sudan`s army and Darfur`s most powerful rebel group have left more than 160 people dead.



Khartoum: Officials say that clashes between
Sudan`s army and Darfur`s most powerful rebel group have left
more than 160 people dead.

Army spokesman Capt Khalid al-Sawarmi said today that
government troops killed 108 fighters from the rebel Justice
and Equality Movement in the Jebel Moon area of western Darfur
a day earlier.

Sudan`s official SUNA news agency reported that
government forces also battled JEM rebels near Nyala in south
Darfur. SUNA quotes senior police official Dr Mohamed Abdul
Magid al-Tayeb as saying 27 police and 33 rebels were killed
in those clashes.

JEM confirmed the south Darfur violence in a statement on Saturday. The rebels broke off talks with the government on a
permanent peace deal two weeks ago, accusing the military of
conducting a new Darfur offensive.
