Text size Aa Aa

Chadian forces have reportedly crossed the border into Sudan after repulsing a rebel attack on a border town. Scores of Chadian soldiers deserted their barracks in late September before regrouping near the border, and the government has accused Khartoum of supporting the deserters and using them to fight its rebels in Darfur.

The clashes have raised tensions in the Darfur region where rebels have fought Sudan’s central government for almost three years. Chad also claims Sudan was behind a rebel raid on a border town on Sunday night that is believed to have ended in hundreds of deaths.Sudan has denied any involvement.
