NAIROBI, Kenya (Reuter) - Sudanese rebels said on Friday they seized three garrisons in the northeast of Africa's largest country and were threatening Port Sudan, a key link with the rest of the world.

Yassir Arman, spokesman for the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) in Eritrea's capital Asmara, said rebels captured garrisons at Karora, Itairba and Shabri near the Eritrean border on Thursday.

''We are now advancing towards the town of Tokar through what is a well-inhabited agricultural area,'' he said by telephone.

Nairobi, 24 March 1997 -- The United Nations World Food Programme today dispatched an emergency assessment team to Yei County in southern Sudan, to look into reports that food is desperately needed by thousands of displaced Sudanese now returning to their homes. Large groups of southern Sudanese families are reported to be returning not only to the area of Yei, but also Morobo and Kaya in Sudan's Eastern Equatoria region, after the SPLA (Sudan People's Liberation Army) recaptured these towns over the past few weeks.

KHARTOUM (Mar 10, 1997 06:13 a.m. EST) - Sudan has said that Uganda attacked two border towns in the south to support rebels fighting the Khartoum government.

State television interrupted its regular broadcast late on Sunday to read a statement from the armed forces saying that the rebels had launched their attacks from Uganda and Zairean areas under Ugandan influence.

"The bombing of Bazi was conducted from the Zairean towns of Ariwara and Ambakolo which are overrun by Tutsi rebels supported by Uganda," said the official statement.
