Feingold Concerned Over Darfur

Senator Russ Feingold says he's very disappointed the UN Security Council weakened a resolution aimed at the Sudanese region of Darfur.

The council established a 26,000 member peacekeeping force yesterday.

But the resolution also removed harsh language in an effort to pick up some votes.

Feingold says it didn't go far enough.

Sudan's government is accused of using a militia of Arab nomads against an African tribes rebellion.

It resulted in a mass genocide that has killed 200,000 people and displaced 2.5 million more since 2003.

Sudan has denied the charge
