WASHINGTON, March 17 (Reuters) – Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir will be held responsible for any deaths caused by the expulsion of 13 foreign aid groups from Sudan, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

“This is a horrendous situation that is going to cause untold misery and suffering for the people of Darfur, particularly those in the refugee camps,” she said, adding that a U.S. special envoy for Sudan would be named within days.

“The real question is what kind of pressure can be brought to bear on President Bashir and the government in Khartoum to understand that they will be held responsible for every single death that occurs in those in those camps,” she told reporters
