Sudan has extended a curfew in Khartoum indefinitely on Sunday saying some Darfur rebels were still on the loose after attacking a western suburb of the capital, the governor of Khartoum said.

"We have lots of wandering defeated fighters , and we are chasing them and we don't want civilians to get caught in the cross fire," Khartoum state governor Abdel Haleem al-Mutafi told Reuters.

Some fighting could still be heard in the far west of Omdurman in Khartoum state on Sunday morning, witnesses said.
