Genocide in Sudan

Download Audio

In New York Times columnist Nick Kristof's Africa, the dead and dying of Darfur in Sudan come powerfully to life. Sometimes literally. In another urgent Kristof column this week from the landscape of rape and murder, a corpse literally opens its eyes — not yet dead it turns out — as if to stare at the world.

Some 300,000 have been killed in Darfur, Sudan. Millions have been driven from their homes into desolation. The United States called it genocide in 2004, and now Kristof says it's getting worse, spilling into neighboring Chad.

Hear voices from Darfur, the top Bush administration official on the case, and Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, on the trail of genocide.
