    Background: Sudan, which offered in October to send 10,000 regular troops to join the Iraqis in the war against Iran, has agreed to send civilian volunteers as well. Iraqi officers have been in Sudan signing up Sudanese to serve in the war. The film shows Colonel Osman Eltahir of the Iraqi army talking to volunteers at an army centre in Khartoum on November 15, and explaining the conditions of service to them. Some 2,000 volunteered but only 300 were selected. It has not yet been announced how Sudanese regular troops and the volunteers will be deployed. Jordan has already sent 2,000 men in volunteer units to help Iraq, and has said it is willing to send regular troops as well.
