Sudanese government still reeling from AU's damning statement

A Sudanese military spokesman said that as the AU's information had come from aid agencies, it could not be considered reliable.

Helicopters have not flown in Darfur for two weeks, he said, and then they had been used to defend, not attack, civilians.
