Sudan no longer engaged in “coordinated” Darfur genocide

As the White House finalizes a new comprehensive review on its policy toward Sudan, U.S. President Barack Obama’s special envoy for Sudan, Major General Scott Gration,┬árecently said that the Sudanese government is no longer engaging in a “coordinated” campaign of mass murder in the Darfur region.

The United Nations has estimated that since 2003, about two million Darfuris have been displaced while some 200,000 have died, mainly from starvation and disease.

Gration joins Martin Savidge to discuss these issues and recommend a new approach to handling Khartoum.
