Srinagar: Gunmen in military uniforms have killed eight people in Sudan’s war-torn Darfur region, reports said on Tuesday.
However, reports said that rebels accused the army of being behind the attack.
The shooting happened on Sunday late night in Nertiti in the Jabal Marra area, where sporadic clashes between the army and rebels have continued despite government-announced unilateral ceasefire.
The Sudan Liberation Army – Minni Minnawi rebel group accused pro-government forces of conducting the attack.
The conflict in Darfur — a region of the size of France — erupted in 2003 when ethnic minority rebels took up arms against Arab-dominated government, accusing it of marginalising the region. (Agencies)
