The U.S. government has banned further aid to Sudan because coup leaders have not restored democratic government, a U.S. official said Thursday. Earlier, aid had been barred because Sudan was behind on interest payments, the official said. John Riddle, a spokesman for the Agency for International Development, said the ban went into effect against Sudan on Feb. 28 because of a law prohibiting aid to any coup government that has not restored democratic rule in eight months.
