No longer a headache: Leaders of Chad, Sudan sign peace deal

Agence de Presse Sénégalaise:

President Idriss Deby of Chad and Sudan's Oumar el-Beshir signed a peace agreement Thursday evening in Dakar, Senegalese Foreign Minister Cheikh Tidiane Gadio announced.

The ceremony took place at the State House, outside the summit of the Organisation of Islmaic Conference (OIC) open the same day in the Senegalese capital.

The peace negotiations between Omar el-Beshir and Idriss Deby were initially scheduled for Wednesday at 8 pm but they are postponed until Thursday, because the Sudanese President had a headache on his arrival in Dakar.
