UN envoy thrown out of Sudan

UN envoy Jan Pronk left Khartoum on Monday after the Sudanese government ordered him to leave as persona non grata.

Pronk was orderd to leave after he published comments on his Web site revealing that the Sudanese army lost two major battles to rebels in North Darfur, morale was low, and generals were relieved of command.

Sudan's jihadi government continues to ramp up the attacks on Darfur, as the Russians, Chinese and the Arab League continue to stonewall any international action.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called Sudan's decision to expel Pronk "unfortunate in the extreme."
