    The Sudanese army claims to have killed the leader of the main Darfur rebel group.
    Khalil Ibrahim led the Justice and Equality Movement, or JEM, the most organised and effective military force in the conflict-torn western region. The group did not join a peace deal signed last year in Doha, Qatar, between other Darfur rebel groups and the Sudanese government.
    The military said Ibrahim was wounded on Thursday during a military offensive in North Kordofan state, which borders Darfur. The government said he died of his wounds on Saturday and that rebels quickly buried him. The government did not say how it confirmed his death.
    JEM representatives could not be reached for comment. Ibrahim's death, if confirmed, would be a serious blow to JEM, which has on several occasions threatened to bring down President Omar al-Bashir's regime by advancing toward the capital.
    Sudan's information minister, Abdullah Massar, said Ibrahim's death sends a message to rebel groups "to listen to the voice of wisdom and join the peace process". He said: "Our doors are open and the Doha agreement is open."
    Darfur has been in turmoil since 2003, when ethnic African rebels who accused the Arab-dominated Sudanese government of discrimination took up arms against it. The Khartoum government is accused of retaliating by unleashing Arab militias on civilians, a charge the government denies.
    The conflict has tapered off since 2009, but the UN estimates that 300,000 people died and 2.7 million have been displaced. The international criminal court in The Hague has issued an international arrest warrant for Bashir for his alleged role in crimes against humanity in Darfur.
    Massar said 30 people were killed with Ibrahim in the clashes. An army statement carried by Sudan's official SUNA news agency said Ibrahim and several associates were killed in Wad Banda.
    "The army cut all paths for the group as it was retreating and trying to cross into South Sudan to reorganize it forces," said an army spokesman, Colonel Sawarmy Khaled. "Our gallant armed forces were able to kill rebel Khalil Ibrahim along with some of his associates."
    South Sudan seceded from the north in July to become the world's newest nation.
    Fighting in Wad Banda had flared up in the past few days. On Saturday, the Sudanese army said Darfur rebels attacked three locations in neighboring North Kordofan, killing an unspecified number of civilians. JEM has not claimed responsibility for the attack.
    A security officer with the United Nations mission in Darfur (Unamid) said JEM mostly operated out of North Kordofan state and no longer had an official presence in Darfur.
    This year, Unamid had nearly 26,000 troops and police stationed in Darfur, making it the largest UN peacekeeping operation.
    Ibrahim is believed to have recently returned to Sudan after years in exile in neighboring Libya, where he enjoyed the patronage of Muammar Gaddafi before the dictator was ousted and killed in October. Sudanese officials said JEM had been trying to regroup since losing Gaddafi's reported support.
    Ibrahim once served in Bashir's government before joining the rebellion. He refused to join a peace agreement signed in Qatar and backed by the African Union that was meant to provide a basis for a ceasefire, power sharing, equal distribution of wealth and compensation for displaced people.
