Dinks-Nuer Peace Conference Sudan

In the Central African country of Sudan, death and destruction take place on many levels. A civil war has pitted the largely Arab northern half of the country against the black African south on and off for 40 years. Famine periodically visits various parts of the south. And individual tribes often do battle over cattle and turf, their most valued possesions. Early this year, leaders of the Dinka and Nuer tribes sought to alleviate suffering at the most basic level ... by forging a tribal peace.
