Rebels in Sudan's western Darfur region have launched an attack on government forces, killing several people, state news agency SUNA said.
Rebels attacked the government-controlled area of Abu Dalig in North Darfur on Wednesday, SUNA said late on Friday, citing a local official.
It said several "mujahideen", a synonym for fighters from government-allied militias or tribes, were killed or wounded during the attack, adding that rebels had tried stealing property of citizens. It gave no details of what had happened.
The Sudanese Revolutionary Front, an alliance of rebels in Darfur and two border states, said it had attacked a government convoy in Abu Dalig near al-Fasher, capital of North Darfur.
"The government forces suffered huge losses," it said in a statement, adding that the rebels had seized five military vehicles, heavy weapons and ammunition.
