Jimmy Carter Fights Back in Darfur Exchange

Former President Jimmy Carter was involved in a tense verbal exchange Wednesday in Sudan.

He was traveling in Darfur as part of a delegation trying to gather information about the conflict that has left more than 200,000 people dead and more than 2 million displaced.

The exchange occurred when Carter was told he was not allowed to meet a tribal elder.


Meanwhile, refugees passed notes to the delegation, telling of how they have been raped by men aligned with government forces.
