Darfur mission may fail, warns UN


news.bbc.co.uk

The joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission to Darfur may fail unless countries can provide helicopters and lorries, a top UN official says.

The 26,000-strong force is aiming to bring security to the region after more than four years of conflict.

The deployment is scheduled to begin in six weeks, but could be delayed if the necessary equipment is not received.
