Between 2,000 and 10,000 refugees, fleeing from Darur, are trapped at the border with Chad. The situation remains unclear because humanitarian workers have had to evacuate the zone. Local rebel commander Abbas Mohamed said a dozen civilians were killed and 20 arrested Tuesday during the latest government attack in the Jebel Moon area in West Darfur. Mohamed accused the government troops and their janjaweed militarian allies of stopping the refugeess and trapping them at the border. The fighting continues.
