A Darfur rebel group claimed it attacked an Chinese-run oil field in central Sudan on Tuesday forcing more than 1,000 soldiers to flee the area. Khalil Ibrahim, the powerful leader of the Darfur's rebel group the Justice and Equality Movement, said rebels attacked the oil field early Tuesday and forced three Sudanese army battalions, which were protecting the oil fields, to flee. Ibrahim declined to say if anyone was killed or injured in the attack, which occurred in the Heglig area located in Sudan's Kordofan region, about 435 miles (700 kilometers) southwest of the capital, Khartoum. He said a large number of vehicles, weapons and ammunition were also seized in the attack.
