Darfur update

The conflict in Darfur has continued in different forms, but with no less
brutality, for over four and a half years. This week there will be an
opportunity to stop the fighting and chart a course toward peace.

Negotiations will begin Saturday, with participation from the UN, AU, the Sudanese government, parties that committed to the Darfur Peace Agreement back in May 2006, armed opposition groups, and representatives from civil society in Darfur.
