the sense that it is a hopeless case of incomprehensible

just as they need better and more effective efforts on the Somali side.

that has been undertaken by the NGOs and UN agencies
that have been active for many years here,
especially through the local staff and international
staff here in Somaliland and in Somalia at large.

It is only the Somalis themselves - and I don't hide
that fact when I meet the political leaders here -

fighting each other every time they have a problem.
They have to learn how to do peaceful conflict resolution.
- Jan Egeland

Council issued a statement today expressing its concern
about the massive humanitarian crisis in Darfur and
calling on all parties to the conflict to protect civilians and reach a ceasefire.

three provincial capitals of Darfur.

raped and tortured.
