Fighters rampage in Darfur despite fragile Sudan truce


Associated Press

CAIRO (AP) — Armed fighters have rampaged through a main city in Sudan’s war-ravaged region of Darfur, battling each other and looting shops and homes. Thursday’s violence came despite a fragile truce between Sudan’s two top generals, whose power struggle has killed hundreds. The mayhem in the city of Genena pointed to how the rival generals’ fight for control in the capital, Khartoum, was spiraling into violence in other parts of Sudan. The two sides accepted a 72-hour extension of the truce late on Thursday. The agreement, brokered by the United States and Saudi Arabia, hasn’t stopped the fighting but enabled enough of a lull for tens of thousands of Sudanese to flee and for hundreds of foreigners to be evacuated.
