Reuters: UN's Ban welcomes Sudan leader's Darfur truce. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday cautiously welcomed Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir's latest declaration of a ceasefire in the war-ravaged western Darfur region. "The secretary-general welcomes ... Bashir's declaration of an immediate ceasefire between the government of Sudan and the armed movements in Darfur as well as the intention by (Khartoum) to disarm all the militias," the office of Ban's spokeswoman said in a statement.

United Press International: Sudan's Bashir scoffs at war crime charges. Sudanese President Omer Hassan Bashir says war crimes charges leveled against him by an International Criminal Court prosecutor are merely "nuisances." Speaking Tuesday to a rally in Kordofan, Sudan, Bashir said the three counts of genocide, five counts of crimes against humanity and two counts of murder sought by ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo against him are "nuisances" and "similar to mosquito buzz," the Sudan Tribune reported.

CNN: Obama is asked to focus on Darfur. Human rights groups are asking President-elect Barack Obama to pay early attention to the crisis in Sudan's troubled Darfur region, where government forces have waged a bloody war against militias that some international critics have characterized as genocide. "We've seen the military surge in Iraq. We've seen the development surge that NATO's announced for Afghanistan," said Darfur activist John Prendergast. "What's really needed in Sudan and the broader Horn and East Africa region is a peace surge."

Reuters: BLOG: How serious is Sudan's Darfur ceasefire? Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir was in a jubilant mood when he announced to crowds of supporters that he was declaring a ceasefire in Darfur. From his body language, you might have thought he had already ended the crisis and achieved his goal of avoiding a possible indictment by the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in Darfur.
