Wanted militia leader hurt in clashes in Darfur's biggest city

A prominent Sudanese pro-government militia leader wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court was wounded during clashes in the biggest city in the strife-torn Darfur region on Sunday, officials and witnesses said.


Police said gunmen shot at Muhammad Ali Abdel-Rahman, an Arab militia leader known as Ali Kushayb, state radio said. He is being treated in a hospital, officials told the al-Shorouq TV channel, blaming the gunfire on an individual argument. (Reuters)
