African Union Planning To Redraw Continents Borders to End Legacy of Colonialism

ADDIS ABABA -- Experts from the 53-member African Union met Monday to work on precisely marking out Africa's new borders by 2012, officials said.

"The time has come to properly and accurately delineate borders in Africa," the bloc's Peace and Security Council (PSC) Commissioner Said Djinnit told AFP.

"A precise and proper demarcation of the borders will be the cement of integration in Africa."

African borders drawn by colonialists often split ethnic groups between countries, as well as sparking conflict over access to resources and other feuds.

The two-day talks were to be followed by a ministerial meeting on Thursday.
