U.S. and European media

Associated Press: US may airlift African peacekeepers to Darfur. The U.S. envoy for Africa said Monday that Washington was ready to airlift as many as 4,000 peacekeepers, including Ethiopians and Egyptians, for the joint U.N.-African Union mission to Darfur. The mission started deploying in Darfur in January but remains at less than half of its 26,000 authorized capacity, and has complained of Sudanese government stonewalling and transport problems.

Reuters: US praises Sudan for speeding Darfur peacekeeper roll-out. A senior U.S. official on Monday praised Sudan for speeding up the deployment of peacekeepers in Darfur but stopped short of saying it had done enough to win support over a war crimes probe. The top U.S. diplomat for African, Jendayi Frazer, struck a rare positive note saying Khartoum had shown "energy" and more flexibility in getting international troops into Sudan's violent west. But the United States still needed to see more action on the ground to resolve the five-year conflict, Frazer told reporters at the end of a two-day trip to Sudan.

Reuters: Sudan Journalists In Hunger Strike Over Censorship. More than 150 Sudanese journalists and support staff Tuesday started a 24-hour hunger strike to protest against censorship by state security services, media executives said. They added three opposition newspapers would shut down for three days, and writers from other publications would withdraw their columns to highlight a growing crackdown on media. "We are being censored every day," said Ajras al-Huriya newspaper's general manager Saleh Ahmed Mohammed Elhag at the protest launch. The daily Ajras al-Huriya is closely linked to the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM), the main political party in the south and part of a national coalition government set up after the peace deal.
