Darfur's new UN force could be same troops in different hats

"We are against a UN presence," said Abdallah Jouzou, mayor of Kouma in pro-government territory 80 kilometres (50 miles) from Al-Facher.

"The African Union has helped to settle the conflict in Darfur and it remains the only solution," he said.

But when an AU officer explained to him that the new UN force would be mainly African, Jouzou looked relieved.

"In that case, it's fine," he agreed.
