Sudan army denies French paratroopers' attack against Darfur village KHARTOUM, March 28 (KUNA) -- The Sudanese army on Wednesday denied reports circulated over raids carried out by French paratroopers against one of the villages in Darfur.
Army spokesman Othman Mohammad Al-Aghbash said in a statement that the Darfur districts had not been raided by French paratroopers as some news agencies claimed.
He said that the town of Piraw, which was the core of news agencies, is located in the state of Central Africa and it is the capital of one of its districts.
He added that the Sudanese army precisely spots any infringement in the air, sea or land in the entire country.
Meanwhile, news agencies had earlier reported that French paratroopers attacked rebels in the border areas of Darfur and led to the destruction of Piraw town. (end) hha.tg KUNA 282258 Mar 07NNNN
