BBC > AU troops set to arrive in Darfur AU troops set to arrive in Darfur

A force of 150 Rwandan troops are expected to arrive in Sudan over the weekend to protect African Union (AU) ceasefire monitors in Darfur.
Rwandan Foreign Minister Charles Murigande said their mandate did not include the protection of civilians.
But the deployment of 2,500 AU peacekeepers is being considered, UN special envoy Jan Pronk said.
More than a million people have been driven from their homes since the conflict started 18 months ago.
'Gentle African pressure'
Despite Sudan's rejection earlier this week of an AU proposal to send a larger force with authority to protect civilians, it appears pressure is mounting on the Khartoum government to consider a peacekeeping force.
"Discussions are ongoing to find a solution that will be much more satisfactory," Mr Murigande told the BBC.
