There are more unconfirmed but numerous reports of fighting in western Sudans North Darfur state. The rebel SLM claimed it killed 302 Sudan government (Khartoum) soldiers in a battle near the town of Kutum. The SLM lost 25 killed. A Sudanese helicopter was shot down and two-dozen vehicle destroyed. AFP carried one report and said its source was a phone call from an SLM spokesman. Its very tough to get reporters into many of these areas.  On July 15 the Sudanese government said its troops were tangling with the rebels near the town of Al-Teinah. The SLM had claimed it took that town July 14.
