Violent fighting in southern Sudan

The Sudanese rebels announced yesterday that government forces took over Leir town after the eruption of fighting in what is considered as a violation to the truce agreement reached by representatives for the warring factions currently in Kenya to hold peace talks. The spokesman for the rebels, George Ganarg, said that the “government launched a large attack and controlled today ( yesterday) morning Leir town.” Workers at relief agencies confirmed that strong fighting was taking place in the western higher Nile province where Leir is located. However, the rebels and the Sudanese government who are holding talks currently in Nairobi in an attempt to end the war between them ongoing since 20 years had signed a provisional agreement to ceasefire in an attempt to support the peace process.
