Sudanese rebel group accuses government of killing five civilians

A Sudanese rebel group has accused the government of killing five civilians, one in an air raid, in the country's troubled Darfur region.

Jar al-Naby, a spokesman for the Sudan Liberation Movement, was quoted by the Al Sahafa newspaper as saying a military plane attacked Malam Housh locality in West Darfur on Saturday, killing one civilian and wounding another.

He was also cited as saying government-backed militias attacked the Jebbel Moon area in West Darfur on Saturday, killing four civilians.

The Sudanese government could not be reached for comment.

The four-year conflict between ethnic African rebels and pro-government janjaweed militia in Sudan's western region has killed more than 200,000 people and displaced 2.5 million Darfurians.
