A high level Egyptian delegation will go to Sudan to try to resolve escalating tensions between former southern Sudan rebels and the national government, Egypt's foreign minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit said Tuesday. Gheit said the influential head of the Egyptian intelligence, Omar Suleiman, would join him in the delegation due to head Wednesday for Sudan's capital, Khartoum, and Juba - the capital of autonomous southern Sudan. The announcement came as Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir agreed to meet Tuesday in Khartoum with a southern delegation headed by Riek Mashar, the deputy leader of the Sudan Peoples' Liberation Movement.
