U.N. Says Darfur Efforts Could Collapse...
EL-FASHER, Sudan (Reuters) wrote:The United Nations' new humanitarian chief said on Sunday efforts to help Darfur could collapse if the situation there got any worse, and worried EU leaders called for tougher sanctions on Sudan.
As John Holmes toured the region, Germany joined British and American calls for extra sanctions on Sudan for barring U.N. peacekeepers from its vast western region.
Prime Minister Tony Blair, branding the situation in Darfur intolerable and Khartoum's actions unacceptable, called for new sanctions on leaders responsible for the violence and for a no-fly zone to be considered.
An estimated 200,000 people have died and 2.5 million have fled their homes in a conflict between rebels complaining that Sudan neglects Darfur and the government which has enlisted Arab militias to battle them.
EL-FASHER, Sudan (Reuters) quoting Tony Blair wrote:"We need to get a new resolution in the United Nations which extends the sanction regime against the key individuals who are perpetrating this violence."
"All of the countries that are permanent members of the Security Council have to play their part."
