Top Sudan General Kidnapped

Sudan’s army spokesperson said on Tuesday that rebels in the west of the country had captured a senior military officer after killing his bodyguards in a recent attack on the North Darfur state capital of Al-Fasher. “Major-General Ibrahim Bushra Ismail was abducted by the outlaws while he was leaving his residence and after his four bodyguards were shot dead,” said General Mohamed Beshir Suleiman. He said he did not know where the rebels from the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) were holding Ismail, whom he identified as the commander of an air force unit in Al-Fasher. “The troops are still pursuing the outlaws and have so far killed about 50 and captured nine of them,” he added. North Darfur governor Ibrahim Suleiman said on Monday that the rebels, who raided Al-Fashir on Friday, had killed 32 soldiers, including two officers, and seven civilians and destroyed four parked military planes.
