Sudan, Egypt meet on Darfur conflict
Sudanese president Omar Al-Bashir is in Cairo for talks with his Egyptian counterpart, Hosni Mubarak, to try to resolve the long-running conflict in the western Sudanese region of Darfur.
Egypt is trying to bring the Sudanese government and rebel groups together for negotiations.
The meeting follows talks which Egypt hosted on Saturday between representatives of several rebel factions, including the United Resistance Front and the Sudan Liberation Army.
Afterwards the rebel groups expressed hope that Egyptian efforts could help unite them and pave the way for direct talks with the Sudanese government.
Cairo continues to support president Al-Bashir who faces a warrant for his arrest on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.
It has asked the United Nations to freeze his case before the International Court. - BBC
