The Sudanese military said Monday that seventeen of its soldiers were killed repelling a Chadian army raid on a Sudanese border town in West Darfur. Sudanese army spokesman Osman Mohamed al-Aghbash said in a statement issued by the military that a company of the Chadian army, consisting of 140 trucks and seven armored vehicles, crossed into Sudan and attacked For Baranga, a small town within several kilometers of the Chad border. He said the Sudanese army and police pushed the attackers back across the border, but seventeen soldiers were killed and 40 wounded in the process. The statement also said the raid "caused big losses among civilians" that were still being calculated. The Chadian government could not immediately be reached for comment.
