Calls to maintain peace in Sudan

The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom urged President Barack Obama to increase efforts to maintain peace between northern and southern Sudan.

It called on the White House to appoint a special envoy to Sudan and confront China about sending weapons there.

The commission also emphasized the need for greater religious freedom protection for non-Muslims in northern Sudan, which is governed by Islamic law.
