DOHA (AFP) – Qatar pledged $500 million in aid to rebuild Sudan’s western Darfur region, rocked by a decade-long civil war, the official QNA news agency on Monday quoted a minister as saying.

“Qatar has pledged an amount of $500 million as grants and contributions for rebuilding Darfur,” said the gas-rich emirate’s minister of state for cabinet affairs, Ahmed bin Abdullah al-Mahmud.
