CAR blames Darfur rebels for cross-border ambush

BANGUI - Central African Republic said on Friday that Sudanese rebels killed 11 of its soldiers in a cross-border ambush aimed at stealing weapons and ammunition.
The attack took place on Tuesday at a military post in Amdafok, a few kilometers from the border with Sudan's Darfur region, officials said.
"The Central African contingent ... was attacked Tuesday at Amdafok, with 11 killed and 11 injured," the government said in a statement read over national radio.
It added the attackers were "Tora Bora rebels", slang for anti-Khartoum rebels from Darfur, seeking to resupply after fighting in the Sudanese town of Nyala.
