Cindy McCain sells holdings tied to Sudan

WASHINGTON - Cindy McCain, whose husband has been a critic of the violence in Sudan, sold off more than $2 million in mutual funds whose holdings include companies that do business in the African nation.

The sale yesterday came after news organizations questioned the investments in light of calls by John McCain, the likely Republican presidential nominee, for international financial sanctions against the Sudanese leadership.

Mr. McCain, who was campaigning in Ohio, said neither he nor his wife was aware of the Sudan-related holdings.

Last year, at least four presidential candidates divested themselves of similar holdings involving firms doing business in Sudan.
