Sudan rebels attack garrison, kill dozens

Khartoum – Sudanese rebels said they captured a garrison in conflict-hit South Kordofan and killed 54 troops on Saturday, with the army denying the claim.

Khartoum has been battling the Sudan People’s Liberation Army-North (SPLA-N) in the southern Blue Nile and South Kordofan states since 2011.

The SPLA-N “attacked and liberated Habila town garrison” in the north of South Kordofan on Saturday, with retreating government troops leaving 54 dead behind them, SPLA-N spokesperson Arnu Lodi said in a statement.

But Sudanese military spokesperson Colonel Al-Sawarmy Khaled Saad said the army had “repulsed a sabotage attempt” in Habila.

Troops “forced the rebels out and are in complete control of the site”, Saad said.
