CAIRO (AP) — The head of Sudan’s military has accused the rival paramilitary force of committing war crimes in the northeast African country’s brutal ongoing conflict. Gen. Abdel Fattah Burhan accused the paramilitary of committing violations under the falsehood of promising to restore democracy.  Fighting between the two forces broke out in April. The rights organization Amnesty International has accused both warring parties of committing extensive war crimes. A Sudanese legal group said violence flared up in South Darfur province last week, killing dozens. Last month, a prosecutor from the International Criminal Court said he would be investigating alleged new war crimes in Darfur. The region was the scene of genocidal war in the early 2000s.
