Al-Fashir, Sudan -- Sudan and two rebel groups agreed yesterday to a 45-day ceasefire as well as access for relief groups in the western Darfur region, where the United Nations has repeatedly warned of a possible humanitarian disaster.

Foreign Minister Mustafa Osman Ismail said the three parties, meeting in Chad, also agreed to hold more talks in two weeks on the conflict, which has displaced hundreds of thousands of people in Darfur.

The UN has warned of a humanitarian disaster in the region, where Arab militias have been driving African villagers off their land in what international groups have described as ethnic cleansing. Reuters
