Some Hopeful News

After much delay the UN has signed a resolution to send 10,000 peacekeepers to southern Sudan in order to help enforce a peace agreement that was signed in January.

Aid to the Darfur region is still being held up by US refusal to refer Sudan war-crime cases to the International Criminal Court which the US does not endorse. The US cites concern that the International Criminal Court will subject American citizens to a politically motivated court as the reason for opposing it, but others believe that the US government does not want to be held accountable to international law.
