Sudan: Darfur Rebels Publish Names Of Captured Sudan Soldiers

Dobbo — A rebel group from Darfur that is reported to have battled the Sudanese army earlier this week published the names of three soldiers captured in the combat.

In a joint offensive, the Sudan Liberation Army of Abdel Wahid (SLA-AW) and Sudan Liberation Movement for Justice (SLMJ of Karbino) are said to have killed 18 Sudanese officers and to have seized the Dobbo El Madrasa garrison. The captured soldiers, according to Karbino, are: Majeed Saleh Abkar, from the Texas neighborhood in Nyala; Al Tayeb Mohamed Adam Yahya, from Umm Douanban in east Khartoum; and Al Shaby Hassan Al Hadi, from the Al Sad Al Ali neighborhood in Nyala.

Besides seizing the garrison, rebel forces claimed killing 18 soldiers during Monday's battles in East Jebel Marra. Although Radio Dabanga was not able to verify the information with the Sudanese army, local witnesses support rebels's claims concerning the seizure of the garrison.
