President Bush appointed Andrew Natsios as U.S. special envoy for Sudan. The move announced Tuesday, during Bush’s address to the U.N. General Assembly, is aimed at putting pressure on the Sudanese government to end the massacre in Darfur, in which Janjaweed Arab militias have killed 200,000 to 400,000 people. Natsios is a former administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development.
