KHARTOUM - A major rebel group in Sudan's Darfur region said it was holding 52 international UNAMID peacekeepers mainly from Senegal, a rebel spokesman said on Monday.

"We are holding the UNAMID soldiers because they entered our territory without permission and because they were accompanied by three Sudanese we suspect work for the security services," said a spokesman for the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM).
