Sudan rebels say take town in Darfur in new push

KHARTOUM - Rebels in Sudan's western Darfur region said on Tuesday they had seized control of a town from Sudanese government troops, part of their campaign to topple President Omar Hassan Bashir's government.
"Our forces entered Girayda, south of Nyala, and took over the garrison completely," Abdullah Mursal, spokesman for the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) faction led by Minni Minnawi, said.
"We want to bring the downfall of the regime. And to do that we have to take over cities before we reach Khartoum," he added.
