Sudan-Chad, Politics, 9/30/2005
The UN has announced that 29 Sudanese refugees were killed in an attack launched by the Janjawid militias at a camp for the refugees in Darfur, north west of Sudan.
The UN commissioner for refugees affairs said that the preliminary reports his agency received said that Arosharo camp was attacked by 300 men riding horses and camels on late Wednesday evening.
In a statement, the Commission said that the report indicated that other ten persons were injured.
The news came after a new result from a Chad's military source said that 75 persons including 55 civilians were killed in the attack which was launched by gunmen that came from Sudan to a village in the far east of Chad on Monday.
Chad's President Idris Debi accused members of Janjawid, which are supported by the Sudanese government, of killing 55 shepherds in Madioun village
He added that the confrontations which took place between Chad's army and "the horse-men who were wearing the military uniform" resulted in killing 17 attackers and three Chad's soldiers.
Deibi said that Chad which mediated in the peace process in Darfur, where a fragile agreement was adopted to cease fire since April 2004, played a basic role in easing down tensions without alienating to any of the warring side.
