Darfur rebels

The Sudanese army said it inflicted a series of defeats on Darfur's most powerful rebel group, killing and capturing hundreds in a series of clashes over the past few days.
General Al-Tayeb al-Musbah Osman, the commander of the western region, told the state news agency that the army killed at least 300 members of the rebel Justice and Equality Movement and captured another 86, destroying dozens of their vehicles.
He added in late Friday's report that 75 Sudanese soldiers lost their lives in fighting across five areas of the north.
For its part, JEM said it had clashed with government forces, but maintained it had defeated them.
