Battle of Adre extends Darfur Conflict
Wednesday, December 28, 2005
After the Battle of Ardre, many civilians and military officers of both Chadian and Sudanese origin were killed. After this, Chad declared (according to some translations) a "a state of war" against Sudan, and encouraged all of its people to honor that declaration. There have been many conflicting reports of the number of deaths, but a good estimate would be that both sides have lost around 400-600 people.
These battles and declarations is just a continuation of the Darfur that has ravaged this region for several years past. As tensions between the two nations get more fierce, we can only imagine what might come next.
