Sudan Democracy First Group-The SLM-MM and the government confirmed clashes on 2 and 4 March in Alleit Jar-Elnaby, Haskanita and Al-Tawisha, the birth place of the governor of North Darfur. SLM-MM claim they are in control of the area. On 7 March, SLM-MM announced it had gained control of another two towns in East Darfur. The offensive prompted Khartoum to send a high-level delegation, including the vice-president. The events once again prove that Darfur’s complex conflicts need to be addressed as part of the overall solution to Sudan’s governance crisis.
