Bush frees money for African troops in Sudan
US President George W. Bush directed the Pentagon to spend six million dollars in "commodities and services" to help transport African Union troops to Sudan's violence-wracked Darfur region.
Bush's decision was announced in a memorandum for US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that was made public by the White House.
The move came hours after the US State Department announced that Rice would visit Sudan and the Darfur region next week for her first trip to the African country since taking office.
