Comment

CAIRO — Sudan has accused neighboring Chad of a cross-border attack before this week that a prime commander says killed at minimum 18 nomads in Sudan’s western Darfur area.

In accordance to Sudan’s ruling sovereign council, armed Chadian assailants crossed into West Darfur province and attacked a group of nomads being in an open space near the border cities of Beir Saliba and Ardeiba very last Thursday.

Apart from all those killed, numerous nomads were being also wounded in the assault and their livestock was looted and taken to Chad, the council stated Friday.

There was no quick remark from Chad on the accusations.

A Sudanese outlet, Darfur 24 information, described a minor clash Friday involving Chadian and Sudanese forces in the location, indicating a few Sudanese troops had been wounded.

Senior Sudanese Gen. Mohammed Hamdan Dagalo, the deputy head of the sovereign council, had travelled to Chad right before the assault for a formerly scheduled conference Thursday with Chad’s performing president and head of the country’s ruling transitional navy council, Mahamat Idriss Deby.

He then returned to Darfur where by he has resided for months to assistance defuse tribal tensions and violence that has rocked the troubled area in new months.

Dagalo attended the funerals of the slain nomads on Friday and urged tribal leaders and residents in West Darfur for restraint. On Saturday, he satisfied with a Sudanese-Chadian joint committee and held talks with area officials and tribal leaders to avoid a further more escalation.

Sudan has called on Chad to obtain the attackers and return the looted livestock.
