A report on alleged chemical weapons use in the Darfur region of Sudan underscores the need to bring an end to the ongoing conflict there, the head of UN Peacekeeping told the Security Council on Tuesday.

Hervé Ladsous was referring to an investigation released last week by Amnesty International which found that "at least 30 suspected chemical attacks have taken place so far this year" in the Jebel Marra region.

Dianne Penn has the story.
