AU peackeepers killed in Darfur

The Sudanese army and armed opposition groups in the region blame each other.


    But Abdel Aziz el-Nur Ashr, commander of the armed opposition group Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), told Reuters news agency that they had moved their troops out of Haskanita four days earlier for other operations and blamed the attack on the government.
     
    "There was an aggression from Sudan Armed Forces (SAF) from three directions on Haskanita and that attack was from the SAF," Ashr said. "We don't have troops there."
     
    Haskanita, in the far southeast of Darfur, has seen government bombardment and heavy fighting between the army, militias and rebels.
