Don't Forget to mourn for Nigeria too ....
Sudan, Darfur rebel groups sign pact on war-ravaged region

ABUJA (NIGERIA): Sudan's Government and two Darfur rebel groups ended their latest round of peace talks on Tuesday without a comprehensive peace deal to end the deadly two-year conflict that has left tens of thousands dead in Sudan's western region.

Representatives from the Government, the Sudan Liberation Army and the Justice and Equality Movement all signed a three-page ``declaration of principles'' aimed at helping bring peace to Darfur as mediators announced the end of the fifth round of peace talks among warring parties.

War-induced hunger and disease have killed more than 180,000 persons and driven more than two million from their homes in Darfur's conflict, according to U.N. estimates.
