Reuters: Sudan orders probe into oil revenue "discrepancies".  Sudan has ordered an investigation into a report of discrepancies in its oil revenue figures, the state finance minister said on Tuesday, adding he was worried oil groups might be short-changing the country. Activists last week said they had found revenue figures for some oil fields published by Sudan's Ministry of Finance were around 10 percent lower than figures for the same fields published in the annual reports of operator China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC).

Post Chronicle: Protest Groups Wait For G20 Permits.  Pittsburgh officials are still trying to deal with permit applications from protest groups targeting the Group of 20 summit next week.  Some organizers expect thousands of marchers calling for action on climate change or economic justice, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. Others plan smaller events to call for justice in a specific country.

BBC News: Finnish genocide trial in Rwanda.  A Finnish court has moved to Rwanda to hear evidence in the genocide trial of a former Rwandan preacher who moved to the Scandinavian country in 2003. Finland has charged Francois Bazaramba with genocide and 15 counts of murder in Rwanda in 1994.  Finnish law allows prosecutions for crimes against humanity wherever they are committed. If found guilty, Mr Bazaramba, 58, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. He denies all the charges.

The following op-ed appeared in the The Herald News: CARR: Darfur democracy and genocide, 09-16-09.  Al-Jazeera has been doing some interesting interviews lately with rebels from the Sudan region who wanted to get something off their chests. They want to let everyone know that they are liars who exaggerated the death and rape tolls among the women and children in the Sudan in order to get free stuff.
