The Sudanese Government and the JEM (Justice and Equality Movement ) signed a ceasefire in February 2010, with an agreement to pursue further peace. The JEM has the most to pursue further peace. The JEM has the most to gain from talks and could see semi-autonomy much like South Sudan. However, talks have been disrupted by accusations that the Sudanese army launched raids and air strikes against a village , violating the February agreement.
