Clashes between Sudanese forces and rebels in conflict-hit Darfur have forced some 10,000 people to flee their homes, the U.N.-African Union mission in the region (UNAMID) said Monday.The fighting flared last week around Jebel Marra, a mountainous area straddling South, Central and North Darfur states seen as a stronghold of the rebel Sudan Liberation Army led by Abdelwahid Nur (SLA-AW).Although Jebel Marra was the scene of intense fighting earlier last year, Darfur had been relatively calm until last week.Some 300,000 people have been killed in the conflict in Darfur since 2003, according to the U.N., and ethnic conflicts and rising criminality have further deepened instability in parts of the region.There are also more than 2.5 million people displaced by unrest living in the Darfur region, the U.N. said.
