Militia chief scorns slaughter charge (Sudan)
Janjaweed leader hits back at accusation of ethnic cleansing in western Sudan

Dressed in a crisp white robe and prayer cap, Musa Hilal patted his nephew's head and offered sweet pastries.

"The rebels stayed near civilians and war has its consequences, bullets fly," Mr Hilal, 43, said in his first interview with a British newspaper.

He is alleged to be the most senior field commander of the Janjaweed, the Arab militia whose campaign of murder and rape has driven more than a million black African villagers from their homes in the western region of Darfur.
