Darfur's Underground Megalake

Recently, geologists and remote sensing scientists say they have found evidence of a vast buried lake in the Darfur region of Sudan. They believe the the lake to be the size of the U.S.'s Great Lake Erie. Darfur is one of the the driest, most arid places on earth. A major source of conflict in Darfur is, logically, the lack of fresh water. If this discovery proves to be accurate and fruitful, it could mean a much greater chance for peace in the war torn country.
