AU Security Council holds emergency meeting on Darfur

Hold on to your hats, we are about to witness African politics in action:
"The [AU] council has been convened urgently ... because of the extremely alarming degradation of the situation on the ground in Darfur and that fact that AU troops are being targetted," said Adam Thiam, a spokesman for AU chief Alpha Oumar Konare.

"It will be a question of asking the council member states to condemn these acts and find a means of putting an end to them," he told AFP, adding that the meeting was set to begin at 4:00 p.m. (1300 GMT).

Note, Darfur Forum representatives arrive for talks in Abuja. Best of luck.

Sudan's SPLM will stand firm against anti-human rights laws. Great.
