Darfur refugees await peace

Mediation team aims to end conflict in Sudan's western region ahead of South Sudan referendum.


    While Sudan gears up for next month's referendum on independence for the south, Khartoum is facing pressure to bring an end to the conflict in the western region of Darfur.

    A Darfur mediation team is aiming to broker an agreement between the rebels and the government by December 19.
