Sudan denies visas to Darfur for UN military group

Sudan's president refused to grant visas to Darfur for a UN military assessment mission that wanted to plan for a UN peacekeeping mission, a UN spokesman said on Wednesday.

"They felt this was not the time for a UN assessment mission to go into Darfur until the Abuja process was completed," UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said. "We have a clear political line from the Sudanese at this point."
