How do you respond to an event as difficult to understand as a government-sponsored mass murder of part of a country’s civilian population? The United Nations has described Sudan’s western Darfur region as one of the world’s worst humanitarian crises.
- Over 400,000 people have been killed
- Rape used as a systematic weapon of ethnic cleansing
- Around 2.5 million displaced
- World’s biggest relief operation
The conflict flared in 2003 when rebels in Darfur took up arms against the Arab government that had neglected the region. Since then, the Janjaweed, backed by government troops, have carried out widespread killings of civilians. President Bush has condemned the campaign as genocide, and the United Nations has approved the deployment of international peacekeepers in Darfur to create a hybrid United Nations-African Union peacekeeping force.
