Crisis in Darfur Persists, Despite International Pressure

Sudan was thrown into the spotlight this year, as the conflict in the Darfur region created a humanitarian disaster. But international attention has done little to resolve the crisis. NPR's Neal Conan and guests provide an update on the situation in Darfur.

Guests:

Jonah Fisher, freelance journalist based in Khartoum, Sudan.

Adrian McIntyre, aid worker in Sudan for Oxfam, an international aid organization.

John Prendergast, former director of African Affairs in the Clinton administration; now special adviser to the president of the International Crisis Group; was in Darfur in September and will be visiting refugees camps in Chad next month with actor Don Cheadle, who stars in the new film Hotel Rwanda.
