The BBC is reporting (as well as many other sources) that the Darfur peace agreement has been deliberately broken by the Sudanese government and their Janjaweed militias.
Even though two key rebel groups did not sign the May agreement, Minni Minnawi's group and the government in Khartoum did. However, with today's attacks, the government has not lived up to its end of the bargain.
The once very fragile deal is now shattered. Everyone (including third party nations like the US, Britain and others) must go back to the drawing board and do everything in their power to make sure that innocent lives are spared.
