Sudan providing orders and support for Darfur killing

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Not that this comes as much of a surprise, but the BBC report on Darfur details the links between the government of Sudan and the deadly Janjaweed militia.

A man identified only as "Ali" told the BBC's Newsnight programme that Sudanese ministers gave express orders for the activities of his unit, which included rape and killing children.

"The Janjaweed don't make decisions. The orders always come from the government," he said.

"They gave us orders, and they say that after we are trained they will give us guns and ammunition."

"Ali" - who is now seeking asylum in Britain - said the men who had trained them were wearing the uniforms of the Sudanese military, adding that Interior Minister Abdul Rahim Muhammad Hussein was a "regular visitor".
