Darfur peace mediators said they will press on with negotiations due to start Saturday in Libya despite the decision by two main rebel groups to boycott the talks, saying time was running out for the wartorn Sudanese region. Officials from the United Nations and the African Union plan to open the negotiations with a call for an immediate cease-fire commitment from all parties attending the talks. However, Friday's announcement by the Justice and Equality Movement and SLA-Unity rebel groups that they will boycott the peace talks was a major blow to negotiations the UN hoped could reach a lasting peace agreement for Darfur.
