Some good news in Darfur

The Sudanese government has agreed to allow UN peacekeepers in Darfur. This will see the number of peacekeepers more than double, from 7,000 to at least 17,000. It's not enough, and too late the save the lives of the estimated 400,000 killed so far by the Sudanese authorities or their janjaweed proxies, but it's some small progress at least.
