BBC NEWS: Meanwhile in Darfur...

BBC NEWS | Africa | UN Darfur 'catastrophe' warning: "The head of the UN refugee agency has warned of a humanitarian catastrophe in the Sudanese province of Darfur if the security situation does not improve.

Antonio Guterres called on Sudan's government to allow a UN peacekeeping force into the country, saying it was time to put the people of Darfur first.

Mr Guterres also warned that the escalating violence was now a threat to the stability of the entire region.

Three years of conflict have left millions displaced and thousands dead.

The UN says the situation shows no signs of improving, and aid agencies say it is getting worse."
