U.N. Security Council adopts resolution threatening economic consequences for Sudanese government

Updated:
UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ The U.N. Security Council on Friday adopted a much-revised U.S.-drafted resolution that threatens economic consequences for the Sudanese government if it does not rein in Arab militias in Darfur.

The resolution was adopted with 13 votes. China and Pakistan, which opposed the threat of consequences, abstained, saying Khartoum needs more time to stop the violence.

The final version of the text deleted the word ``sanctions'' but kept the threat of economic or diplomatic action against the African nation unless it disarms Arab militias blamed for killing thousands of black African farmers.
