Reuters: Sudan Holds Journalist, Press Censorship Lingers On. Sudanese authorities have detained a journalist in Darfur as part of a crackdown on newspapers which has included daily censorship, former southern rebels and journalists said Thursday. They said security agents detained Noureddin Brema, a Sudanese reporter with the Ajras al-Huriya newspaper in the state of South Darfur on October 11. The newspaper has close ties with the former rebel group the Sudan People's Liberation Movement (SPLM).

BBC: Trapped in Darfur refugee camp. I first met 28-year-old Khaled Abdel Muti Ali a year ago in Abu Shouk camp on the outskirts of Fasher in North Darfur. Sitting around in a small mud hut in the huge, sandy settlement, he and a group of other Darfuris described the grim conditions there and answered questions from people around the world as part of a BBC laptop link-up. I went back to see how their lives had changed, and they said the violence and insecurity had only got worse. "Now when I look to the future it looks very dark," says Khaled.

Agence France-Presse: Chad-Sudan to return envoys. Troubled neighbours Chad and Sudan have agreed to return ambassadors in two weeks, paving the way to a full restoration of diplomatic ties following rebel attacks, official media said on Friday. "Sudan and Chad have agreed on the return of their ambassadors to Khartoum and N'djamena within two weeks," Sudan's state news agency SUNA reported. Sudanese and Chadian media said the agreement was reached at a meeting in the Libyan capital Tripoli on Thursday between Chadian Foreign Minister Moussa Fekki and Sudanese presidential advisor Mustafa Osman Ismail.

NPR: Darfur Women Scarred By Fighting. Tears of the Desert: A Memoir of Survival in Darfur is the first memoir written by a woman caught in the war in Darfur. The author, Halima Bashir, was born into the Zaghawa tribe in the Sudanese desert. She received a good education away from her rural surroundings. Halima excelled in her studies and exams, surpassing even the privileged Arab girls. With her love of learning and support of her father, a cattle herder, Halima went on to study medicine, and at 24 became her village's first formal doctor. Yet, that, nor anything else, was enough to protect her from the encroaching conflict that would consume her land.

Christian Post: New Book Available for Free to Educate, Mobilize Christians on Darfur Crisis. Many in America have heard of the atrocities taking place in Sudan's Darfur region. Few, however, can say they know well about the ongoing crisis and even less have done something to stand against it. In light of this, the United Methodist Church General Board of Church and Society, the One Horizon Foundation along with the Enough Project are offering free copies of a new study guide as part of an effort to share with Christians how to get involved in the movement to end genocide and the crimes against humanity in Dafur. Cory Smith, the advocacy director for the Enough Project, says Not on Our Watch Christian Companion: Biblical Reflections to End Genocide in Darfur and Beyond adds a desperately needed faith perspective on Darfur and the problems of genocide.
