Sudan said a rebel African group in the Darfur region has ties with Israel. The foreign minister of the Islamist government in Khartoum said on Sunday that several leaders of Justice and Equality Movement had bolted because others among the group’s chiefs were making frequent visits to Israel. Mustafa Osman Ismail, who was in Cairo seeking Arab support for his government, said the breakaway leaders “confirmed that the leadership of the movement make regular visits to Israel.” A spokesman for the movement denied the allegation, casting it as an attempt to stir up Muslim sentiment.
