In pictures: Darfur horse festival

Horses and peace

Tribal leaders in Darfur came together recently for a traditional equestrian festival that has been revived as a forum for discussing peace and reconciliation.

The four-day gathering in the southern Darfuri town of Addu'ayn was attended by powerful and prominent leaders from both Arab and black African groups.

It was aimed at defusing tensions in a region where a five-year conflict has forced more than two million people from their homes and left some 300,000 dead.
