Darfur rebels said they had shot down two Sudanese army helicopters in the latest reports of fighting that have marred faltering peace talks between Khartoum and other insurgents.
Sudan's army said two if its helicopters crashed after developing technical problems, but denied there was any attack.
"Government forces attacked our positions in South Darfur yesterday (Sunday)," Ibrahim al-Helwu, from the rebel Sudan Liberation Army (SLA) told Reuters, speaking by telephone from Paris.
"Our forces shot down two of their helicopters one crashed at the site and the other came down on its way back to Nyala (South Darfur's capital). The government says the war is over but this is just propaganda."
