President George W. Bush's special envoy for Sudan, Andrew Natsios, resigned on Friday and was replaced by a former US diplomat to the United Nations amid questions about the administration's policies toward the vast African nation. Also Friday, the State Department's top diplomat for refugee crises announced her imminent departure.
