NPR's Madeleine Brand speaks with Jack Izzard of the BBC about a movement within the European Union to place sanctions on the Sudanese government. An estimated 30,000 people, mostly black Africans, have died in ongoing ethnic violence in the Sudanese province of Darfur. Observers blame the violence on marauding bands of ethnic Arabs supported by the Sudanese government.
