Bush demands peace in Darfur

Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- President George W. Bush said the violence in the Darfur region of Sudan amounted to ``genocide'' and demanded the Sudanese government and rebel groups cease hostilities to let aid reach victims of the conflict.

Bush told the UN Security Council that "time is of the essence" in taking action to stop the killing, and more international forces are needed. He supports that council's resolution that backs deployment of as many as 3,000 European Union soldiers and UN police to protect Darfur refugees.
