Mass Executions in Southern Sudan Reported

(SudanInfo) Human Rights Watch has discovered that pro-government militias executed 136 men in a coordinated operation last month. According to the UN, more than 10,000 people have been killed and over one million displaced over the past year as a result of conflict in Darfur. HRW says last month, men from the Fur ethnic group were rounded up with the help of government forces, and delivered to their place of execution in army lorries. The Sudanese government has not responded to the report. A UN mission was due to travel to Darfur on Friday to investigate allegations of atrocities there. But the Jem claims the Sudanese government is trying to derail the peace talks so that the deployment of observers is delayed and the attacks can continue. Sudanese minister Mohammed Yussef Abdullah, however, said he was “confirming that there is no single bombing or single air raid that has taken place.”
