Sudan: March 30, 2003


Talks between the government and the SPLM [ Sudan People's Liberation Movement] on relief committees will resume on April 6 (instead of today) under the auspices of the IGAD [Inter-Governmental Authority on Development]. These negotiations will focus on security arrangements, while the previous ones tackled issues of national wealth and power sharing.

Peacemaking efforts between the government and the SPLM rebels have resulted in some improvements, but many problems continue. The United Nations special human rights investigator for Sudan says there has been little improvement in conduct either by the government or rebel forces since its civil war began more than 20 years ago. 

The Islamic regime in the Sudan is also allowing mosques in Khartoum to echo the cry of "Jihad" heard from other radical Islamic activists around the world. During Friday prayers on the 27th, the Minister of Guidance and Endowment expressed that the war in Iraq "is fought so that Israel could become the biggest military and economic power". - Adam Geibel
