    ABU SHOUK, Sudan - Sudan’s foreign minister on Thursday apologized to visiting U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice over the manhandling of U.S. officials and journalists in Khartoum, a U.S. official said.

    U.S. State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said Foreign Minister Mustafa Osman Ismail had phoned Rice while she was on a plane to Darfur in western Sudan to say sorry.

    “He apologized for the treatment of our delegation and the press corps,” McCormack told journalists travelling with Rice, Reuters reported.

    ...very interesting. Is that a sign of how other country leaders view her as Secretary of State? hmmmmmmmm

    Sek posted something about this issue in the Open Forum. However, thanks for posting this. It gives a very good description of what's going on there as well.
