Most money to come from Sudan


Doha, Qatar (CNN) — An international donors conference on reconstruction and development in Darfur ended Monday with donors pledging nearly $3.7 billion toward "recovery, reconstruction and development of Darfur during six years."

The bulk of the pledges come from a commitment made by the Sudanese government to contribute $2.65 billion.

The state of Qatar announced that it pledged $500 million, and the European Union said it would commit $35 million.
