In the Darfur region of Sudan, Arab militias backed by the government have driven more than 1 million people from their homes, and killed tens of thousands. Secretary of State Colin Powell and U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan will visit Darfur this week in an attempt to end the violence. NPR's Liane Hansen speaks with Salih Booker of Africa Action, an advocacy group based in Washington, about how African, American, and U.N. leaders plan to solve the crisis in Sudan.
