KHARTOUM - Rebels in Sudan's western Darfur region said on Saturday they had successfully attacked a large government convoy in the territory's north, capturing a tank and other military vehicles.

Sudan's armed forces spokesman was not immediately available to comment on the report.

Conflict has raged in the remote territory since insurgents took up arms against government forces there in 2003, complaining Khartoum had neglected the vast, arid region.
