Late: Darfur talks postponed

Sorry, wrote this up yesterday and forgot to file.

Two rebel factions continuing to boycott and Sudan still putting a full court press on the proposed deployment of a 26,000 African Union peacekeeping force forced UN lead mediator to postpone talks on Darfur for three weeks.

"Only after that period ... of approximately three weeks, will we go into substantial negotiations," Mr. Eliasson told the Associated Press on Sunday.
