South Africa’s Mbeki provides AU with report on Darfur

By Incorrect Author 9 October 2009

Former South African president Thabo Mbeki has handed the AU a report aimed at finding a peaceful solution to the conflict in Darfur, where fighting since 2003 has claimed some 300,000 deaths. The AU set up a commission led by Mbeki after a global arrest warrant was issued against Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, accusing him of war crimes in Darfur, where African rebels say they face discrimination and government-mobilised Arab militias. Typically, Mbeki says he won’t make the document public, but it is thought to recommend that a local tribunal - backed by the AU, Sudan and possibly the Arab League - deal with the problem.

Magenta has no physical wavelength. It thus does not "exist" strictly speaking. Rather our brains are telling us that we are seeing "not green".
