Darfur update

KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Darfur rebels on Monday said they had released five hostages seized during a raid on a Chinese-run oil field and repeated threats to attack more foreign operators in the energy-rich area.

The Justice and Equality Movement said it launched the attack because they believe these Chinese oil companies fund Khartoum's military. Sudan's Ministry of Energy and Mining lists 24 companies with stakes in oil concessions in the country.
