U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir said Thursday that new peace talks to end the four-year conflict in Darfur will start Oct. 27 in Libya.

There was no immediate word from the Darfur rebels on whether they would attend the conference. Most rebels have rejected a peace deal that one rebel faction signed with Khartoum last year, and Ban — on his first visit to Sudan — has been pressing to get the groups to the negotiating table.
