Pension Funds Are Being Sold That Support Sudanese Government

That announcement was made Wednesday by State Treasurer Richard Moore, who oversees the fund. He says about $24 million of the $70 billion pension fund was invested in the companies. The United States has accused Sudan's government of unleashing Arab militiamen to quell a rebellion by ethnic African tribes that began February 2003 in Darfur. North Carolina officials say they'll try to identify other companies that support the Sudanese government.
