Summary
With the Darfur Peace Agreement in shambles, this Wide Angle report portrays the desperation of daily life five years into the Darfur conflict, from the sprawling Abu Shouk refugee camp to volatile rebel-held areas of Sudan seldom reached by Western reporters. General Martin Luther Agwai, commander of the combined United Nations/African Union peacekeeping force for Darfur, is featured as the cameras follow him into a hostile region on a mission to persuade reluctant rebel leaders to come to the negotiating table. An interview between Aaron Brown and Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof concludes the program.
