AFRICA/SUDAN - Chadian troops entered in Darfur, accusing a rebel movement
Khartoum (Agenzia Fides) - The Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), one of the main rebel groups in Darfur (western Sudan) has accused Chad of having sent troops across the border and warned Chadian President Idriss Deby Itno not to get involved in the conflict between the Khartoum government and rebel groups in the region.
Chad has sponsored an agreement between a splinter group of the JEM and the Sudanese authorities. The leaders of this dissident faction, Mohamed Bashar and Suleiman Arko, however, were killed in an ambush while returning in Sudan from Chad. The JEM is accused of the ambush in Chadian territory, an accusation that the leadership of the movement rejects.
The JEM also stated that Chad has had a role in the killing in December 2011 of its leader Khalil Ibrahim. (L.M.) (Agenzia Fides 15/05/2013)
