N'DJAMENA, Chad (AP) - Chad's interim defense minister says his
country has stopped its air force raids on Chadian rebel positions in Sudan.

Adoum Younousmi says the raids ended Sunday with Chadian forces
destroying seven pockets of rebels.

He provided no rebel casualty figures, but said the raids, up to 40 kilometers (25 miles) into Sudan, had not harmed any civilians.

On Friday, Sudan said Chadian airplanes had bombed areas inside its territory for the first time, further raising tension between the two countries.

Chad has accused Sudan of sponsoring the rebels - a charge denied by Khartoum.

Chadian rebels have been trying to topple Chad's government for more than three years.
