Reuters: Sudan to allow some restoration of international aid. Sudan has told the United States it will allow some aid back into its Darfur region, U.S. Senator John Kerry said on Thursday. "Thanks to the leadership of the president's special envoy General Scott Gration and thanks to the willingness of the government here to engage in a new dialogue with us, some of that capacity for humanitarian assistance will be restored," Kerry told reporters after meeting senior members of the Sudanese government.

AFP: Some Darfur aid to resume, but rebels must talk peace: Kerry. US Senator John Kerry Thursday urged rebels in Darfur to engage in peace talks with Khartoum and announced the partial resumption of aid, frozen after Sudan's decision to expel foreign aid groups. "What encouraged me today was the fact that every member of the government told me that they are ready to come to the table now with respect to peace discussions and achieving peace in Darfur," Kerry said. "But we all recognized that the rebels must also do the same," he added after talks with Sudan's second vice president Ali Osman Mohammed Taha.

UPI: Aid groups struggle with outbreak in Sudan. After the expulsion of several aid groups from Sudan, the International Committee of the Red Cross is working to address an outbreak of meningitis in Darfur. The gap in administering critical aid has placed a significant strain on agencies like the ICRC that have been forced to deal with a recent outbreak of meningitis in the volatile Darfur region of the country. The ICRC said it partnered with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society and other remaining aid groups to respond to the escalating humanitarian crisis and the ongoing needs of people displaced by violence.
