Al-Bashir says he will not allow UN peacekeepers into Darfur

President Omar al-Bashir vowed on Tuesday that he will never allow UN peacekeepers into Darfur and said he would lead the "Resistance" Against any foreign force, his strongest rejection yet of the United Nations' plan to try to halt violence in the war-torn region.

 

The comments were likely to escalate tensions with the United Nations, coming as a joint UN and African Union team is in the country to plan for deployment of a possible peacekeeping force. (AP)
