Journalists headed to Darfur 

Abraham McLaughlin of the Christian Science Monitor is headed to Sudan. He writes from Rwanda:

“What am I doing here? I’m 10 years too late..."

Even now, by being in Rwanda, we all may be missing a crucial story: "Ethnic cleansing" (as one UN official calls it) in western Sudan.

I’ve already asked my editors if I can go. They've agreed. So my next big trip will be to try to get a closer look at the conflict in the Darfur region of Sudan. If my colleagues join me, maybe we’ll be in the right place at the right time to help highlight a current conflict that needs the world’s attention.
Let's hope so.
