KHARTOUM - The Sudanese army has carried out air strikes against two villages in the troubled western Darfur region, international peacekeepers said.

Violence in Darfur, scene of an insurgency pitting mostly non-Arab rebels against government troops backed by largely Arab militias, has fallen from its peak in 2003 and 2004 but a surge in attacks since December has forced tens of thousands to flee.

Qatar has hosted peace talks that have been delayed by rebel divisions and continued military operations on the ground as Khartoum has gradually reasserted control over major towns and other previously rebel-held areas.

Sudanese forces flew air strikes against Labado and Esheraya villages in southern Darfur on Sunday, the United Nations-African Union peacekeeping mission (UNAMID) said.
