Darfur Update

Media updates first, then blogs

The Scotsman is reporting that sanctions will be held off until next week.

The BBC reports that humanitarian convoys are being attacked by Arab militiamen.

Congress is set to declare Darfur a genocide zone in the next few days.

Peace talks to begin in Eitrea between the Sudanese government and rebel factions aimed at ending the fighting in Darfur.

Congressman Charlie Rangel (D-NY) was arrested in front of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington.

Now what the blogs are saying:

Passion of the Present wants every American to write their Congressmen and Senators to pass the genocide resolution. I will be writing my represenatives tomorrow, if not earlier.

Balloon-Juice has more on the Rangel arrest.

Slings and Arrows makes an excellent about Congressman Rangel's hypocritical stand on Sudan and Iraq. He supports preemption in Sudan, but rabidly opposed the Iraq war. In fact, he had a problem with the deaths of Saddam's two little bastards.
