Child rape and ethnic killings exposed in Sudan – UN

International

A report by the UN’s Human Rights Office has laid bare horrific violations being committed by both sides in the war in Sudan.

The report covers the eight months after the conflict broke out last April and contains evidence from hundreds of people.

It suggests thousands have been killed in ethnically motivated attacks in the Darfur region and includes allegations of children being raped.

Satellite imagery shows the widespread use of heavy explosives in densely populated areas, killing large numbers of civilians.

The report comes after video footage emerged this week of students being beheaded by men in uniform who later paraded the decapitated heads through the streets.

The UN is calling for an end to the fighting and inclusive talks towards a civilian government in Sudan.
