Sudan calls for Darfur Truce
Saturday Sudanese leaders said they would call for a ceasefire in Darfur, while they participate in peace talks with Libya in the city of Sirte. The fighting and war began in Darfur in 2003 and a 2006 peacetalk treaty had failed to create a ceasefire, according to the BBC. Sudanese presidential adviser Nafie Ali Nafie said: "We announce a ceasefire from this moment, and we will respect it unilaterally." (BBC)
