Gary Knight, co-founder of the VII photo agency, and Rod Nordland, Newsweek’s Chief Foreign Correspondent, have just returned from Darfur. They speak about a country in meltdown and the incredible human suffering in the region.

Since 2003 a war has been raging in Darfur under the nose of the world’s political elite. Well-meaning politicians and celebrities have beaten a path to the refugee camps, been photographed with raped women and orphaned children, wrung their hands and called for something – anything – to be done. Little of any consequence has been.
