Reuters: Militias kill six in Darfur village raid - rebels. Sudanese pro-government militia fighters on horesback have killed six people and abducted five in a raid on a village in the Darfur region, rebel leaders said on Wednesday. But a spokesman from Sudan's armed forces dismissed the accusations of an attack on the village of Dere on Tuesday as "definitely incorrect", saying there was no military or militia activity in north Darfur.

Reuters: Sudan continuing attacks on Darfur-UN rights envoy. Sudan's government continues to launch deadly land and air attacks in Darfur, where peacekeepers lack the resources to protect civilians, a United Nations human rights investigator said on Tuesday. Sima Samar, U.N. special rapporteur on human rights in Sudan, said all sides in the conflict were committing abuses, including looting and rapes, without being held responsible.

Reuters: UN, EU failing to protect civilians in Chad: Oxfam. The United Nations and the European Union have failed to protect civilians from violence in eastern Chad and should urgently strengthen policing operations there, international charity Oxfam said on Tuesday. The U.N. Security Council decided in September last year to deploy an EU peacekeeping force in eastern Chad and Central African Republic, as well as a U.N. mission known as MINURCAT to train and support Chadian police to guard U.N.-run refugee camps.
