Chad accuses Sudan of supporting new rebel push

Chad accuses Sudan of supporting new rebel push

Chad's government is accusing its neighbor Sudan of backing a new rebel push into its territories only days after the two signed an outline for a peace agreement.
Chad's Information Minister Mohamed Hissene said Tuesday that hundreds of armed men on vehicles drove across the border from Sudan a day earlier and are now stationed near the town of Goz Beida. He said there was no fighting.
A Sudanese foreign ministry official Ali Youssef denied the accusations. Youssef said Sudan is committed to the deal signed in Qatar Sunday.
Previous agreements were short-lived because the two sides trade accusations that each supports the other's rebel groups.
