Reuters: Sudan extends deadline for election nominations.  Sudan has extended the deadline for nominations in the first multi-party vote in 24 years after candidates said they did not have enough time to prepare, election officials said on Wednesday.  Elections would go ahead as scheduled on April 11 when Africa's largest country, recovering from decades of war, will hold a poll already marred by accusations of fraud, vote-buying and intimidation during last year's voter registration.

Agence France-Presse: Sudan rebels say Sunday peace talks unlikely.  The main rebel group in Sudan's Darfur has said peace talks in Qatar with the Khartoum government were unlikely to resume as hoped Sunday but instead there may be "consultations" to choose another date.

Reuters: Darfur rebels say death sentences threaten peace talks.  Darfur rebels on Wednesday condemned a death sentence on two of its members by a Khartoum court, saying it endangered the peace process.  Two Justice and Equality Movement (JEM) members were sentenced to death on Tuesday for their part in an attack on Khartoum in 2008.  They and 103 others also awaiting execution were due to be freed under a goodwill agreement last year, when JEM released 82 prisoners.

Your Ottawa Region: Mission Possible: Darfur.  It started off as just a class project.  Charlotte Nahon needed to pick a current issue to focus on for her Grade 12 world issues class at A.Y. Jackson Secondary School.  She turned her sights on the mass ethnic slaughter in Darfur, Sudan.  What the 18-year-old learned only made her want to learn more.  Do more.  Nahon, together with the help of her classmates, created a fundraiser to help victims of the Darfur genocide.
