UN Says Sudan Orchestrated Darfur Crimes

The Sudanese government has orchestrated and taken part in "large-scale international crimes" in Darfur, a high-level UN human rights team said today.

Headed by the Nobel peace laureate Jody Williams, the UN assessors found the Sudanese government was responsible for waging a ruthless campaign resulting in war crimes and human rights abuses.

"The principal pattern is one of a violent counter-insurgency campaign waged by the government of the Sudan in concert with Janjaweed/militia, and targeting mostly civilians. Rebel forces are also guilty of serious abuses of human rights and violations of humanitarian law," Ms Williams's team found.
Let's cut to the chase: this is genocide! And the Arab League and China have blocked any realistic efforts to stop it!
