World Bulletin / News Desk

Sudan singed on Saturday an agreement with  Darfur rebels, canceling death sentences for Justice and Equality Movement (JEM)  prisoners, Sudanese President Omar al-Beshir said. 

Darfur's JEM said on Saturday it was ready to sign a temporary ceasefire with Sudan's government, according to Reuters

JEM, main Darfuri armed group, said the deal would be a step forward but would not mark the end of its struggle with Khartoum.

"This is not the end of anything. This is just the start," spokesman Ahmed Hussein Adam told Reuters from Chad's capital N'Djamena, where he said the fighters had held talks with a Sudanese government delegation for the last three days.
