  Sudan 'agrees to UN action plan'
Updated 06 August 2004, 10.29
Refugee family
The United Nations says Sudan has agreed to a plan to sort out the crisis in the Darfur region, where thousands of people have been killed.

The UN previously gave the country 30 days to tackle the violence, that has left 1m people homeless.

A group which supports the Sudanese government, called the Janjaweed, has driven loads of people from their villages in the African country.

The plan includes steps to disarm these kind of groups and to improve security.
