Reuters: Darfur rebels shun conference, seek direct talks. One of Darfur's strongest rebel groups on Friday said it had refused to take part in a planned peace conference in Qatar and demanded instead one-to-one negotiations with Sudan's government. The rejection from the Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) will be seen as a setback for the Sudanese government. Sudan has held up the Qatar plans as a key part in its strategy to end the Darfur conflict, and to deflect moves to indict its president for war crimes in the region.

Reuters: Sudan rejects one-on-one Darfur rebel talks. Sudan on Sunday rejected a Darfur rebel group's calls for one-on-one negotiations, creating a stalemate in the early stages of a new peace push. The powerful rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) demanded direct talks with Khartoum on Friday and said it would not go to a planned peace conference in Qatar, involving a large number of Darfur's fractured insurgent movements. But government officials on Sunday told state media they would not hold individual negotiations with separate groups and said they were determined to find a "comprehensive" solution to the five-year conflict.

Reuters: Sudan, Chad swap ambassadors six months after rift. Sudan exchanged ambassadors with Chad on Sunday in the strongest sign of reconciliation since the neighbours cut diplomatic ties over an attack on Khartoum six months ago. An African Union delegation said an improvement in relations between the two countries was a key foundation to any peace efforts in Darfur, which is on the Sudan-Chad border. But it said many agreements had failed in the past.

AFP: Mubarak in Sudan for talks on Darfur crisis. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak held talks with Sudan's President Omar al-Beshir in Khartoum on Monday focused on the crisis in Darfur, where Beshir stands accused of war crimes and genocide. "The best way to find a solution to this problem (the conflict in Darfur) is the Arab and African initiative," Mubarak told reporters at Beshir's heavily guarded guest house, without going into detail.

Afrique en ligne: 23 Darfuris sent back to Sudan by Egypt. A Darfur human rights organisation said Egyptian authorities deported 23 Sudanese from the troubled Darfur region back to their home country after they were arrested in the Sinai Peninsula. According to the Darfur Democratic Forum, the migrants had been detained near Al Arish, not far from the Israeli border, 26 August, for allegedly seeking to enter Israel illegally.
