6 members of a major Darfur rebel group were sentenced to death on Tuesday,
including a top commander, the group’s lawyer said. A 7th member of the group,
the Justice and Equality Movement, was sentenced to 10 years in prison. The
charges included terrorism, illegally carrying arms and murder, the lawyer
said. The ruling was another blow to the rebels, whose leader was killed by
government forces in December.
