JOHANNESBURG -- Rebels trying to overthrow Sudan's Islamic regime are posing one of the biggest challenges in 13 years of civil war, thanks to new ties with the northern opposition and some apparent help from outside friends.
In the last three weeks, the rebels have swept through more than 10 towns. Wednesday, they reported they had captured two towns less than 20 miles from the strategic Roseires Dam, although the report couldn't be independently confirmed.
KHARTOUM, Sudan (PANA) - A former Southern Sudanese rebel group leader, Kerbino Kwanyin, has joined the commanders of Khartoum's troops fighting to beat off rebel incursions in the eastern towns of Kurmuk and Qissan.
Released by the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, January 30, 1997.
ASMARA, Jan 30 (Reuter) - The main Sudanese rebel movement declared three areas in eastern Sudan it captured this month from the government as disaster areas and appealed for foreign aid.
The Sudan People's Liberation Movement and its humanitarian wing declared Kurmuk, Gazan and Maban counties disaster areas because of what they said was looting by retreating Sudanese government troops.
''The people of the three counties, which are 600,000, urgently require food, medicine, blankets, seeds and tools for the next agricultural season,'' they said in a statement.
The dry season is under way across most of southern Sudan, where civil unrest remains the main factor undermining food security. WFP-Operation Lifeline Sudan (WFP - OLS) estimates that approximately 2.1=A0million persons will require 24,600=A0MT of food aid to cover their needs during 1997. WFP - OLS currently has 11,600=A0MT of food available and it is seeking funds for the remaining 13,000=A0MT.
TITLE=SUDAN FIGHTING (L)
U.S. Embassy Khartoum Press Release of 23 January
1. On 21 January, the Department of State spokesman noted with concern reports of fighting in the Blue Nile region of Sudan and in the area north of Kassala. We urge all parties to the conflict to avoid harm to civilian life and property and to treat all prisoners of war according to international convention.
2. Sudan's claims of foreign involvement in its civil war are an attempt to distract the Sudanese people and the international community from what is essentially a domestic political crisis.

KHARTOUM, Jan 20 (IPS) - The intensification of the armed conflict in Sudan over the past week has added to the religious and political polarisation here, with pro-opposition students and Christian leaders opposing the holy war declared by the state.
The students last week demonstrated in favour of the opposition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) -- made up of the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and six exiled opposition groups -- which has captured two towns and about three military outposts on the border with Ethiopia.
TRIPOLI, Libya (PANA) - The Sudanese government has once again accused Eritrea and Ethiopia of involvement in "a zionist and imperialist plot" to overthrow the regime of President Omar Hassan Al Bashir.
