BBC NEWS | Africa | US calls Darfur crisis 'genocide': "US calls Darfur crisis 'genocide'
Genocide is being committed in Sudan's Darfur region, according to a new US Congress resolution in a move which could trigger international action.
Pro-government Arab militias have forced more than one million black Africans from their homes and killed thousands, human rights groups say.
The US is proposing a UN resolution that threatens Sudan with sanctions.
Sudan denies backing the militias, and has warned the US and UK not to get involved in another Iraq-style crisis. "
