Annan reiterates warning that Sudan will be held responsible if Darfur situation worsens

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said the Sudanese "are placing themselves in a situation where the leadership may be held collectively and individually responsible for what happens to the population in Darfur."

Mr Annan's warning comes ahead of a high-level Security Council meeting on Monday to discuss the situation inside Darfur, which he will attend. Representatives of the Sudanese Government, the League of Arab States and the Organization of the Islamic Conference have been invited to participate. - UN News Service 8 Sep 2006.
