Thousands of civilians in a remote area of Sudan's war-hit Darfur could be affected by fresh fighting between rebel and forces nearby, the United Nations said on Tuesday amid ongoing clashes.Government troops and rebels have been battling around the mountainous Jebel Marra area straddling Central, South and North Darfur states that is seen as a stronghold for insurgents battling President Omar al-Bashir since 2003 .The clashes come despite Bashir – who is wanted on war crimes charges related to Darfur – announcing a one-month extension to a ceasefire he declared in September covering Darfur as well as the South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, where he faces separate insurgencies.More than 300,000 people have been killed in the fighting since 2003, and there are some 2.5 million people displaced by the fighting living in Darfur, according to the U.N.
