Darfur update

ABOU SHOUK, Sudan (AP) — Two refugee mothers handed their babies to a U.N. police officer and squeezed in for a picture. Nearby, other officers helped women fill jugs of water.

The friendly scenes — unthinkable just a few weeks ago because of the refugees' hostility toward ineffectual African Union peacekeepers — show that a new joint force is having some initial success helping Darfur's volatile camps.

Good to see even a sliver of progress in Darfur.
