Sudan and rebels trade accusations of cease-fire violations

The Sudanese government and rebel forces traded accusations Sunday that the other had violated a cease-fire in the ravaged Darfur region just days after it had been announced. Several Darfur rebel factions described government attacks, including aerial bombardments and militia raids in different locations, while the government said rebels had just attacked a government convoy. The deputy head of mission for the UN-African Union peacekeepers in Darfur, Henry Anyidoho, told The Associated Press his forces were investigating the claims, and he urged the armed forces to make good on Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir's cease-fire announcement last week - and for the rebels to comply with it.
