Darfur update

For rebels in Sudan's troubled Darfur region, every day is a struggle. With the hopes of their beleaguered people on their shoulders, they roam some of the world's least hospitable terrain, avoiding attacks by Sudanese helicopters and protecting villagers from raids by the government-backed janjaweed militia.

But, increasingly, the rebels are at risk of becoming the key stumbling block to peace, say analysts.

These rebels have split into more than a dozen quarreling factions and killed 10 AU peace keepers.
