Because it is viewed as "neutral ground," Nairobi will today host a US-sponsored meeting intended to quell power struggles among Darfur rebel leaders.

Deputy Secretary of State Robert Zoellick is leading the US delegation to the talks. Mr Minni Minnawi and Mr Abdul Wahid, the heads of rival factions within the main Darfur rebel group, will be taking part as well.

The discussions are seen as crucial to restarting negotiations aimed at ending a conflict in western Sudan that has taken an estimated 300,000 lives in the past 32 months.

The fighting pits Arab militias known as Janjaweed against black African forces seeking greater autonomy for the Darfur region. The Sudan government has been assisting the Janjaweed in carrying out what the United States has described as genocide against the residents of Darfur.
