CRISIS in DARFUR

Sudanese Face Starvation

Sudanese President al-Bashir, indicted on war crimes charges this week by the International Criminal Court, is planning to take the whole country down with him it seems. In retaliation for the indictment, al-Bashir is kicking out foreign aid workers who are responsible for supplying millions of Sudanese refugees displaced by violence. The move threatens the food supply for some 1.1 million people and UN officials are scrambling to find ways to prevent mass starvation. More than 300,000 people have died in fighting over the last six years, according to the UN.
