Sudan Pledges to Fight Militias in Darfur

Sudan's government promises to fight militias that have been raping and murdering thousands of black African villagers in the western Darfur region. But Sen. Sam Brownback (R-KS), who recently returned from Sudan, says evidence strongly suggests the militias have government support, and calls for a greater international presence in the region. Brownback speaks with NPR's Steve Inskeep.
