Sudan and Darfur rebel group sign cease-fire

DOHA, Qatar (AP) - Sudan's government and a collection of Darfur rebel groups have signed a cease-fire, opening the way for political negotiations ahead of a full peace agreement.

A government representative and a rebel leader signed the truce today in Doha, Qatar.

The Liberation and Justice Movement is an umbrella organization that includes several small Darfur rebel groups that recently united to negotiate with the government.

Last month, Sudan's government signed a similar truce in Doha with Darfur's most powerful rebel group, the Justice and Equality Movement.
