Sudanese intelligence chief Mohamed Attalah al-Mawla has accused the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) on Wednesday of involvement in the abduction of Libyan Prime Minister Ali Zeidan last month.

Al-Malwa, however, failed to mention any details about how the movement was involved in the abduction.

Addressing a meeting of security and intelligence chiefs from around 25 African countries, al-Mawla accused African countries to providing help to armed groups in Sudan and Africa.

He accused armed groups of committing "horrible" crimes against civilians as murder, theft and destruction of infrastructure.

Zeidan was briefly abducted in Libya last month, a move claimed by the self-styled "Operations Room of Libya's Revolutionaries".

The Interior Ministry's anti-terrorism unit had said Zeidan was being held on an arrest warrant issued for him by the group.

Zeidan had later accused two Islamist lawmakers of involvement in his October 10 abduction.

JEM officials could not be reached for comment on the accusation.
