Sudan: February 26, 2003


The Front for the Liberation of Darfur (FLD), yet another Sudanese rebel group, took control of the capital of Jebel Marrah province. The capital is named Gulu (not to be confused with Gulu in north Uganda). Western reports said the FLD put at least 300 fighters into the fight for Gulu. For years the Sudanese government (Khartoum) has armed the nomadic Arabized (and Muslim) tribes of Darfur. These militias have attacked the Zaghawa and Fur tribes in Darfur. Now the FLD is striking back, allegedly on behalf of the minority tribes.
