African countries walk out of climate talks

Just heard that the African countries, backed by the G77 (and China?), have walked out of the main session of the Copenhagen climate talks (COP-15), accusing the developed countries of trying to get out of Kyoto obligations.

Will wait to see what happens, but if true this is unsurprising. They have been threatening for a while.. is it just brinkmanship, or does it reflect a unbridgeable gap...?
