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

split ethnic groups between countries, as well as sparking conflict over access to resources and other feuds.
talks were to be followed by a ministerial meeting on Thursday.
