Darfur update

SIRTE, Libya: Key rebel leaders on Monday called for a Darfur peace conference to be canceled as U.N. and African mediators bid for more time to draw them into the talks, which stalled just after opening.
The two main rebel chiefs are boycotting the U.N. and African Union-brokered conference, saying they won't sit with minor rebel factions they describe as government stooges.

More than 200,000 people have died in Darfur, and the rebel chiefs are doing nothing to work towards peace.
