‘End the genocide’


TENS of thousands of people, led by politicians and Hollywood star George Clooney, yesterday demanded an end to the genocidal conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region.

The rallies came as African mediators extended by 48 hours a deadline for a peace deal.

Rebels had rejected a proposal that would end the conflict that has killed tens of thousands, saying it did not adequately address questions of power-sharing and wealth distribution.
