Bush gives Sudan's president `last chance' to end violence in Darfur

President Bush warned Sudans president on Wednesday that he has one last chance to end the violence in Darfur before the United States imposes strict economic sanctions and considers even sterner options against his country. Bushs warning, delivered in a speech at Washingtons Holocaust Museum, came amid mixed signals from Sudan. Even as President Omar Hassan al Bashirs government announced that it will allow a large United Nations force to supplement African Union peacekeepers in Darfur, Bush charged that it was simultaneously sneaking military arms and other equipment into the region in military aircraft painted to look like U.N. or African Union planes.
