U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon has expressed disappointment over the failure of talks between the Sudanese government and rebels on a cease-fire in Darfur and two other conflict zones.The talks on a cessation of hostilities in Darfur, Blue Nile and South Kordofan were held in Addis Ababa last week after three prominent rebel groups signed a roadmap brokered by African Union mediators for ending the conflicts in the three areas.The African Union mediating panel criticized the Darfur rebels for the failure of the talks.The Darfur rebels took up arms in 2003, triggering a conflict in which at least 300,000 people have been killed and 2.5 million fled their homes, according to the U.N.
