CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- John Edwards says a no-fly zone and multilateral sanctions are needed against the Sudanese government to help end the bloodshed in the country's Darfur region.
The Democratic presidential candidate called on the United States and its NATO allies to take such action. He also urged leaders to put a United Nations peacekeeping force on the ground.
Fighting in the African nation has killed more than 200,000 people and displaced millions.

He called the situation in Sudan "a huge moral issue for America and the world" during a a radio town hall at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
