The (mostly over) war in the Congo was much more devastating than Darfur, and various factions are still very close to jumping back into it. In fact there's been renewed fighting in the Northeast in North Kivu:
"Government forces have been fighting followers of renegade general, Laurent Nkunda, who claims that his aim is to defend the minority Congolese Tutsis of the east from other population groups and armed movements, around Karuba"
But why does Darfur get all the attention? Both certainly deserve notice, but I don't see why the Sudan has become a cause celebre while the much more disastrous Congo can't get any press, let alone a movie star.
