BBC: South Sudan hungry 'quadruples in a year.'  The number of people needing food aid in south Sudan has quadrupled in a year to more than four million, the UN's World Food Programme says. The WFP wants to ensure the people have enough food to last until their next harvest in October.

The following Op-Ed is in the Washington Post by President Jimmy Carter: Jimmy Carter: A crisis in Sudan.  One of the most urgent responsibilities the international community faces is in Sudan, which is facing a renewal of nationwide violence.

BBC: UN aiding Darfur rebels, says Sudan army. The UN-African Union mission in Sudan is helping Darfur rebels by supplying them with equipment, Sudan's army says.

Reuters: Obama warns Sudan may face more pressure on Darfur.  President Barack Obama urged Sudan on Monday to cooperate in efforts to stabilize the country or Washington will conclude that engagement is not working and seek "additional pressure" on Khartoum.  Obama, answering questions submitted via YouTube, said the United States, United Nations and other countries were working to broker a series of agreements to stabilize the country and allow refugees back to their homes.

Foreign Policy: Can South Africa's Bungling Ex-President Save Darfur?   Now just a year after his political exit, Mbeki is back on the diplomatic circuit, working for the African Union (AU) as head of a panel on Sudan. The man who failed in Zimbabwe, who couldn't even keep his own party from ousting him, is now supposedly fixing things in Darfur.
