KHARTOUM - Sudanese armed forces clashed with a major rebel group near the border with Libya and Chad in the troubled Darfur region, an army spokesman said on Tuesday.

Mainly non-Arab rebels launched almost a decade ago an insurgency against Khartoum which responded with a counter-offensive that killed about 300,000 people, according to the United Nations.

Fighting has fallen from 2003-2004 levels but ongoing violence and rebel divisions have been the main obstacles to end the conflict in the vast Western region.

The Sudanese army fought fighters from the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) on Monday in north Darfur where Sudan's border meets Libya and Chad, army spokesman Sawarmi Khaled Saad told Reuters.
